Today the UN International Court will decide whether unilateral proclamation of Kosovo independency was legal or not - RBC.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Representatives of about 40 states will participate in the discussion, but only 15 will make decision, out of them 9 which recognized Kosovo sovereignty: Japan, Sierra-Leone, Jordan, the USA, Germany, France, New Zealand, Great Britain, and Somalia. The six judges are represented by the countries refusing to recognize Kosovo: Russia, Slovakia, China, Mexico, Morocco, and Brazil.
The Foreign Minister of Serbia Vuk Jeremić expressed hope the international court wouldn't join the side of Albanian separatists, who proclaimed the act of Secession.
Meanwhile the IMF decided to allocate Kosovo EUR 108 mln, out of them 22 mln will be transferred immediately. Besides, the territory with disputable status managed to become the member of IMF and the World Bank.
Belgrade lost actual control over Kosovo after NATO aggression against the then Yugoslavia in 1998, but only in 2008 Kosovo proclaimed its independency.
69 states recognized independency of Kosovo.
