Serbian Ambassador to KenyaIvan Zivkovic,69, is dead.

The Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes was formed in 1918; its name was changed to Yugoslavia in 1929.

Serbia was formerly the political and cultural center of Yugoslavia, today it is the northern remain of the former State Union of Serbia and Montenegro.

In 2006 Montenegro voted, after a referendum in favor of independence, to leave the State Union.

In February 2008, after nearly two years of inconclusive negotiations, Kosovo, Serbia’s southern province and a disputed territory, declared itself independent of Serbia – but Serbia refuses to recognize it.

Serbia has an ambitious goal of joining the EU by 2020. In January 2014 Serbia opened formal negotiations with the EU for accession.
