2 Balkan nations grant recognition

October 10, 2008|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Montenegro and Macedonia recognized Kosovo's independence despite opposition from Serbia, which called the moves by its Balkan neighbors a betrayal and expelled the Montenegrin ambassador from Belgrade.

The moves represent a major blow to Serbia's diplomatic efforts to maintain a claim over Kosovo, considered by Serbs to be the cradle of their Orthodox Christian religion.
