Kosovo, formerly a province of Serbia under UN administration, has officially announced its independence and has been supported by the United States, as well as the majority of countries in the European Union. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of China (Taiwan) congratulates Kosovo on its independence. Self-determination is a right recognized by the United Nations, and it is the people who are masters of their nation’s future. In no way should the independence of one nation be denied by another. Despite a multitude of barriers, the people of Kosovo have insisted on an ideal that they believe in, which is to peacefully pursue independence, without being threatened or scared away. Their determination in achieving this lofty ideal is truly admirable. Taiwan is a member of the international community that cherishes democracy and freedom, and the government is delighted that the people of Kosovo have the fruits of independence, democracy and freedom to look forward to. May Kosovo enjoy a bright and prosperous future.(E)
