Kosovo to celebrate 2 years of its independence

Kosovo marks the second anniversary of its declaration of independence on Wednesday amid worries over its legal status.

However there’s optimism over increased co-operation between ethnic groups in the Balkan state.

Pristina last week launched a new campaign to boost international recognition, urging countries to recognise its government. Officials admit that new recognitions have been scarce this year – only 11 compared to 54 in the first year of independence – as many states await the outcome of a ruling by the UN’s highest court, the International Court of Justice.

Kosovo declared its independence on February 17, 2008, when the parliament voted unanimously the declaration of independence.
