Clinton Restates U.S. Support of Kosovo's Independence

Tensions still high in the region


U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has firmly reiterated Washington's support for an independent Kosovo, during a tour of the Balkans.

On Wednesday in Pristina, she said "the United States remains firm on Kosovo's sovereignty and territorial integrity." She was addressing the tensions that remain between the ethnic-Albanian Kosovo government and the Serbian government, which does not recognize Kosovo's 2008 independence declaration.
