Kosovo : Lobbying in Lomé

The Serbian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Vuk Jeremic (picture), was hosted on wednesday by President Faure Gnassingbé; he also held talks with the Prime Minister and the foreign minister.

M. Jeremic indicated that his country had voted for Togo during the october elections at the UNSC.

If the Serb official affirmed this his trip aimed at strengthening economic and political cooperation, it should not be forgotten that Belgrade's worried about a potential recognition of the Albanian province of Kosovo by several African nations.

The Kosovar PM, Behgjet Pacolli, was in Lomé himself this past august.

He then explained the stance of the International Court of Justice that ruled that the territory was legal according to international law; a ruling contested by Serbia.

Kosovo is actually recognized by 80 countries (including Burkina Faso and Benin) but is not a member of the UN.
