Nauru, a tiny island country in Micronesia, northeast of Australia, became the 17th state that revoked its decision to recognise Kosovo as an independent state, N1 reported on Friday.

 Serbia’s Foreign Ministry said Yaren had notified Belgrade it reconsidered the decision since it proved to be premature and violated the UN Security Council resolution 1244 which is neutral regarding Kosovo’s final status.

Ivica Dacic, Serbia’s Foreign Minister, said Nauru’s deputy Foreign Minister handed him a copy of the note sent to our embassy in Australia.

Later on Friday, Kosovo's Foreign Ministry denied Dacic's information and said it did not receive any note about the withdrawal from Nauru.

 Dacic did a maths, and according to him, with Nauru’s withdrawal, 95 world countries now did not recognise Kosovo’s independence, while 93 did, and five were, “so to say – undecided.”

He added he would continue “with the activity,” lobbying with the states to reconsider the decision on recognising Kosovo’s independence.

The EU has warned Belgrade to stop the campaign and Pristina to annul the 100 percent import tariffs on goods from Serbia introduced a year ago, to remove obstacles and resume the dialogue on the normalisation of relations.

Neither Belgrade nor Pristina complied.
