Kingdom reaffirms its recognition of Kosovo’s independence

December 3, 2009

Saudi Arabia yesterday reaffirmed its recognition of Kosovo as an independent republic.  In a statement of support for Kosovan independence before the International Court of Justice, Saudi Ambassador to the Netherlands Abdullah Al-Shaghrud said the Kingdom’s move is in support of the desire of people of Kosovo to achieve independence and self-determination, and in support of the international community’s efforts to bring peace, security, development and progress to Kosovo and the Balkans.

The UN’s highest court is examining the legality of Kosovo’s declaration of independence from Serbia at the request of Belgrade.
