Palau is 56th State to Recognise Kosovo

The small Pacific state of the Republic of Palau became the 56th country to recognise Kosovo as an independent state on Monday.

The President of Palau Johanson Toribiong sent a letter to the newly independent Balkan state’s President, Fatmir Sejdiu, confirming the recognition of Kosovo. 

Palau’s President is visiting the US and has met Kosovo’s charge d’affairs in Washington, Avni Spahiu.

Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in February 17, 2008, a move that was bitterly contested by Serbia and its ally Russia, which has blocked the country’s recognition in the UN’s Security Council.
