Mediators from the EU, Russia and the US have paid a last visit to Kosovo before their report to the UN Security Council.

The mediators say no compromise was reached in 120 days of negotiations between leaders of Kosovo and Serbia. Washington and most EU member states support Kosovo's independence from Serbia.

They consider it the best option for stability in the Balkans.

Leaders of Kosovo's Albanian majority say they will declare independence within months. The US mediator says every option was considered for compromise.

They will submit their report to the UN in a week. But it will not have concrete proposals for Kosovo's future. It will detail the opposing views of both sides.
