    UAE recognizes Kosovo independence

    The United Arab Emirates has become the first Arab nation to recognize Kosovo as an independent state.

    The official WAM news agency announced Tuesday the Emirates recognition of the former Serbian province, which has a Muslim majority and ethnic Albanian population.

    Kosovo declared independence in February with the backing of the United States and key European Union nations, but amid bitter opposition from Serbia and its ally Russia.

    Serbia has lobbied Arab states not to recognize Kosovo and most Middle East countries have so far declined to.

    WAM said the Emirates recognized Kosovo’s independence in line with its "firm support" for nations exercising legitimate right to self determination.
