Serbia Rejects the Independence of Kosovo

Kosovo Albanians celebrating the declaration of Independence last Sunday.

Kosovo declared its Independence from Serbia on Sunday, February 17, 2008. But Boris Tadic, the President of Serbia told Ban Ki-moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations, that Kosovo's declaration of independence is a violation of international law and unacceptable. Vojislav Kostunica, the Prime Minister of Serbia, said, Kosovo is a “false state" and Russia is supporting Serbia.

The United States of America and most members of the European Union have already accepted the Independence of Kosovo, but not all the members of NATO have agreed to recognize Kosovo.

To avoid another civil war, the United Nations must address the disagreement between Serbia and Kosovo.
