Bajram Kosumi spent time with a Serb family at their home in Prishtina. He wished them a Merry Christmas but also said he was there to see what problems they are facing.

Kosumi distributed sweets and chocolate for the children of the family, and sat down for a drink of rakija, a strong, local alcoholic beverage, with the adults.

The international community is pressuring Kosovo's leaders to ensure that Kosovo's Serb minority are offered a viable future in the disputed province, which is under United Nations administration but is still a part of Serbia.
