Egypt has become the 100th country to recognize Kosovo

Egypt has become the 100th country to recognize Kosovo as independent, the Pristina government said June 26, a milestone for the Balkan country’s pursuit of full international acceptance.

“The oldest state in the world, Egypt, has officially recognized now the youngest state in Europe – Kosovo,” Kosovo Foreign Minister Enver Hoxhaj said on Twitter. A ministry official said this was the 100th recognition since Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in February 2008 with the backing of the West.
