If Your Country’s Flag is NOT there, then you DON’T.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has updated the list of official countries recognizing Kosovo by adding Cote d’IvoireÂ and Nigeria as countries that recognizeÂ officiallyÂ the Republic of Kosovo.
This brings the total number of countries that recognize Kosovo to 85.
– Gabon recognizes Kosovo officially
– Kuwait recognizes Republic of Kosovo
– Concerning recognitions by Nigeria and Gabon
– Awaiting official confirmation of recognition by Republic of Côte d’Ivoire
You belong to a country which believes all the negative propaganda or are frightened of upsetting Russia. Either way it makes for a weak government which cannot think for themselves or make decisions for themselves.
By not recognising Kosova, means that your country condones ‘Ethnic Cleansing’ and this is a worrying state of affairs for the rest of the world.
Some of Their Views and Feeble Excuses
“We supported the effort of Serbia when it asked the UN General Assembly to take the problem to the International Court of Justice” In May 2009, the Ambassador of Algeria to Serbia, Abdelkader Mesdoua stated “The Algerian government’s position on the issue of Kosova is clear. We consider this to be a problem of partition, secession, not of self-determination… We will not recognize Kosova as independent and we will remain firmly on this position, unless there is a development that would have Serbia change its stance.
Clearly this country condones the massacres of Serbia.
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner would not give any official statement on the issue, reiterating that there would be no recognition of Kosova. In February 2008, Argentine Foreign Minister Jorge Taiana said “if we were to recognize Kosova, which has declared its independence unilaterally, without an agreement with Serbia, we would set a dangerous precedent that would seriously threaten our chances of a political settlement in the case of the Falkland Islands“.
How can this possibly be a comparison; I don’t recall Argentinian massacre of the people of the Falkland Islands or could they be thinking of the war.
At a meeting with Serbian President in Baku in May 2010, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said that Serbia and Azerbaijan mutually help each other in the international arena and that his country provides strong support for the territorial integrity of Serbia. He stated that the unilaterally proclaimed independence of Kosova is an illegal move and called on all UN member states and to respect the international law.
Well this country will never change it’s view, it will stick with Serbia through, thick and thin, you can liken it to the voting of the European Song Contest, a joke. These countries are incapable of doing anything against Russia. This also applies to:
Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Tajikistan, Ukraine
These countries will never change their position until Serbia does. They are just sheep following the leader.
It has been reported that Bangladesh has not yet recognised Kosovo as it is focusing on strengthening ties with Moscow.
Bangladesh is sitting on the fence unable to make decisions for themselves for fear of upsetting Russia.
In February 2008, President Evo Morales refused to recognise Kosovo’s independence and compared Kosova separatists to the leaders of four eastern Bolivian states who have demanded greater autonomy from the federal government.
In a 4 December 2009 hearing at the International Court of Justice, the Bolivian delegation said that Kosova is an integral part of Serbia and that the Republic of Kosova does not exist.
Another country which condones the massacres.
According to Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremić, Brazil will support Serbia by presenting their negative opinion about Kosovaindependence.
Yet another country which condones the massacres. Which is very worrying.
In 2009, for the first time in its history, China entered a process before the International Court of Justice.China backed the position of Serbia saying that sovereign states have a right to prevent unilateral secessions and protect their integrity.
Not surprising, as we all know China’s views on Human Rights.
Democratic Republic of Congo
In November 2009, President Joseph Kabila said that Congo will not recognise the independence of Kosovo for as long as he lives.
Well what can you say?
Current President, Dimitris Christofias, confirmed in March 2008 that Cyprus would not recognise Kosova as an independent country, out of respect for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Serbia. In October 2009 this stance was reiterated by President Christofias who said Cyprus would not recognise Kosova, even if all other EU members did so.
If you are Cypriot then you should be thoroughly ashamed to be so.
According to Serbia, Kosova’s Foreign Minister Skënder Hyseni and other members of his delegation were denied entry into Ethiopia in January 2010. They allegedly wanted to attend an African Union summit in order to lobby African nations to recognise Kosova. Their visas were denied after pressure by the Serbian government, the Serbian Foreign Ministry said. Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremić, who attended the summit, thanked his Ethiopian counterpart for denying the visas and supporting Serbia’s cause. However, the Kosova Foreign Ministry denies that they submitted any requests for visas
Ethiopia should be ashamed of their actions.
Following a November 2009 tour of several African countries, Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremić said that Gabon had expressed support for Serbia’s diplomatic struggle for Kosova.
Yes another country which condones the horror crimes of Serbia.
n September 2009, new Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou commented on the issue of Kosova’s independence by saying that “its unilateral recognition is a flagrant violation of international law” and added that “Greece’s insistence on international law is a profoundly patriotic stance”.
Greece can’t seem to make up its mind and keeps making excuses not to make a decision.
In January 2009, Ajay Swarup, the Indian ambassador to Belgrade, stated “India will support Serbia on the issue of protection of her sovereignty in all international forums”
I am surprised that India is yet another country which condones the horror crimes of Serbia.
On 6 August 2010, following a meeting with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, the Serbian Defence Minister Dragan Sutanovac said that Iraq did not recognise the independence of Kosova and added that Iraq had supported the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Serbia.
Iraq were undecided before Serbia spoke to them so they too now condone the horrors submitted on Kosova by Serbia.
On 16 September 2009, Israeli foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman said that Israel is “monitoring the situation between Serbia and Kosova” and that Israel hopes for “a really comprehensive and peaceful solution” which would be established through negotiations between Belgrade and Pristina.
The fastest way towards peace would be to recognise Kosovo as soon as possible, the longer it takes the more time for tension to build up.
Following April 2010 meetings with Jamaican officials, Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremić stated that Serbia can count on Jamaica’s continued support in the preservation of its sovereignty and territorial integrity.
Shame on you Jamaica
On 27 February 2008, the Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying that “The Lao PDR urged all sides to respect the resolution of the UN Security Council No 1244, dated 10 June 1999, recognizing Kosova as a Serbian province”
Yet another country which condones the massacres.
At a meeting on 28 May 2009 between the Kosovan Foreign Minister, Skënder Hyseni, and Nawaf Salam, the representative of Lebanon to the UN, Mr. Salam reportedly said that Lebanon will continue to support Kosovo and that the government of Lebanon is seeking the moment for recognition. However, the Lebanese ambassador in Belgrade, Cehad Mualem, was later reported as saying that there was no possibility of Lebanon recognising Kosova in the near future.
One of these countries who cannot make up their mind what to do. Wait until the war trials begin and then see what you are supporting.
Following a 3 September 2010 meeting with Lesotho’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohlabi Kenneth Tsekoa, Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremić stated that Lesotho will support Serbia in all stages of the diplomatic struggle to preserve its sovereignty and territorial integrity.
Does this country have any idea what has been going on?
On 2 October 2008, according to Kosovan Foreign Minister Skënder Hyseni, the Libyan ambassador at the United Nations, Giadalla Ettalhi, pledged to back Kosova’s independence while opposing Serbia’s initiative to contest this. However, Libya did not partake in the vote.
According to Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremić, President Muammar al-Gaddafi reassured him, during an 9 April 2009 meeting, that Libya will not recognise Kosova.
Come on Gaddafi!! we all know this has got more do with the countries who recognise Kosova. I thought you were better than this, like a little kid “I am not going to recognise Kosovo because the US do”. We all know he US does nothing without an ulterior motive, but you have to think of the people of Kosova and forget your anger with the US. It is the Kosova muslim people who are suffering, not American citizens. Stop playing politics with peoples lives.
In a 21 May 2010 meeting with Serbian Prime Minister, Mirko Cvetković, Mali’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Moctar Ouane, said that Serbia can count on Mali’s support in its efforts to preserve its sovereignty and territorial integrity
Come on Mali why are you listening to all this Serbian propaganda.
During a September 2009 visit to Rabat, Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremić said that Moroccan leaders had confirmed that Rabat had consolidated its position on not recognising Kosovo.
Shame on you Morocco for condoning Ethnic Cleansing of Muslims.
Sitting on the fence and too week to make a decision.
In September 2010, following a meeting with a Foreign Minister of Namibia, Utoni Nujoma, Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremić stated that he received assurances that Namibia will never recognise Kosova.
Another country which condones the horrors from Serbia.
Yet another country which condones the massacres.
April 2010, it was reported that the Paraguayan president had told Kosovan pilot James Berisha, who was on an awareness-raising journey around Central and South America, that Paraguay had already recognised Kosova’s independence but had not made this known so as not to jeopardise their relationship with Russia.
Paraguay condones ethnic cleansing, rather that upset Russia. Pathetic!!
An official Solomon Islands government website states that Kosova nationals require approval before entering the country, thus implying recognition of the Kosovan passport. However, no official statement on recognition of Kosovo has been published.
This is not good enough Solomon Islands.
In a 30 August 2010 meeting with Vuk Jeremić, South African International Relations and Cooperation Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane confirmed that her country will not change its decision not to recognise Kosova.
Another country which condones the horrors from Serbia.
He stated that Spain will not change its position despite more than 60 countries that recognised and that “the question could be reverse: why are there more than 100 countries that have not recognized Kosova and why do those 60 not see what the other 100 see?”
Open your eyes Spain and take a closer look at the countries your are in bed with. You are in Europe not Russia or Africa. They are only worried about the Basques, but did Spain go into the Basque region and massacre 10,000 people? So you condone Ethnic Cleansing and not recognise Kosova?
In a June 2009 meeting with Serbian President Boris Tadić, Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa re-affirmed his country’s solidarity with Serbia and stated that Sri Lanka remained firmly opposed to Kosova’s independence as it threatened the international order.
Another country which opposes recognition of Kosova after a meeting with Serbia. Once again condoning ethnic cleansing.
On 13 May 2009, Syria’s ambassador to Serbia, Majed Shadoud, reported that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad told Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremić that that his country continues to oppose the recognition of the independence of Kosova.
Another surprising country to show allegiance to Serbia and their ethnic cleansing.
On 27 September 2010, Uruguay’s Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Roberto Conde, stated that Uruguay would never recognise the independence of Kosova.
Uruguay will not recognise Kosova for no particular reason so yet another country to condone ethnic cleansing.
March 2008, Chavez accused Washington of trying to “weaken Russia” by supporting independence for Kosova. He called Kosova’s new leader, Prime Minister Hashim Thaçi, a “terrorist” put in power by the U.S. and noted that the former rebel leader’s nom de guerre was “The Snake”
This has to be the most stupid country so far, which does not have a clue and believes propaganda. So we will assume they condone ethnic cleansing but probably have never heard of it.
In February 2008, UN Ambassador Le Luong Minh “reaffirmed Vietnam policy that the fact that Kosova’s unilateral declaration of independence is not a correct implementation of the U.N. Security Council Resolution 1244 and that will only complicate the situation in Kosovo and the Balkan region”
It is Vietnam’s non recognition of Kosova which will complicate the situation in Kosova.
