The Republic of Kosovo declared independence on 17 February 2008, at 15:49 CET. The democratically elected leaders of the people unanimously declared Kosovo to be independent from Serbia.

A number of countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Albania, Afghanistan, Australia etc. recognized Kosovo as an independent country over the following days after the declaration of the independence.

On July 2010, the International Court of Justice rejected Serbian claims that the move had violated its territorial integrity and “concluded that the declaration of independence on 17 February 2008 did not violate general international law”.

Kosovo nation and its people are grateful to all those who have contributed to this historical event and have already recognized Kosovo as an independent state.

Today, the Republic of Kosovo is eight years old.
