March 2, 2007 -- The rival parties of Serbia's president and its prime minister today agreed in principle to form a coalition government.
In a statement released after talks between aides to President Boris Tadic and Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica, the two sides said a stable government is needed to bring stability and development to Serbia.
A formal agreement was not signed.
Today's developments come more than a month after Serbs voted in a general election with no clear winner.
