Iceland Recongnizes Kosovo’s Independence

Iceland’s Foreign Ministry announced yesterday that Icelandic authorities have decided to support Kosovo’s declaration of independence from Serbia on February 17, 2008, provided security and stability in the region will be established.

“Kosovo’s declaration of independence spells out clear obligations to respect human rights and the rights of minorities. It is imperative that this obligation be honoured,” reads a statement from the Foreign Ministry.
