Jordan has recognised Kosovo’s independence, making it the 61st country to do so, Albana Beqiri, advisor to the Kosovo Foreign Ministry said yesterday.
Jordan is the first country to recognise Kosovo’s independence in the past two months. Sixty-one states have now recognised Kosovo as an independent nation since it’s unilateral declaration on February 17, 2008.
The last state to recognise Kosovo’s independence was Bahrain.
Kosovo authorities believe that there will be an increase in recognitions from the Arab world now that Jordan and Bahrain are on board.
Kosovo Foreign Minister Skender Hyseni is still waiting for official confirmation from Jordan’s Foreign Ministry.
