Togo, a West African nation on the Gulf of Guinea, became the 15th country which withdrew the recognition of Kosovo's independence, according to Sputnik, a Russian state media outlet, as carried by the Srna news agency.
Sputnik said it got the news confirmed by diplomatic sources. Last week, Serbia’s Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic announced the latest withdrawal but refused to name the country.
Media speculated it was Togo.
Dacic said the news came at the time when NATO Quint countries issued a joint statement regarding Kosovo, urging both sides to resume negotiations as soon as possible, and that Belgrade would precise what country that was this week “to avoid annoying the Quint” which, according to Serbia’s authorities, aimed to stop the country’s diplomatic offensive to get more states to withdraw or suspend the decision on recognition.
