Consultative conclusions of the Court have no binding force, but can lead to political consequences.
Serbia claimed it would never recognize legality of Kosovo's proclamation of independence from Belgrade, even despite decision of the UN Court.
On February 17th 2008, with support of the USA and a number of EU countries Albanian authorities of Kosovo proclaimed their independency from Serbia. By now 69 out of 192 UN members support them.
Serbia, as well as Russia, China, India, and a number of other influential countries refused to recognize Kosovo, believing the separation violates the international legislation.
Kosovo has been under the rule of the UN administration and KFOR international forces under command of NATO since summer 1999, in accordance with UN SC Resolution 1244. This resolution proves territorial integrity of SFRY [now Serbia], and implies necessity to make decision upon the final status of Kosovo.
