Kosovo has declared itself an independent country seperate from Serbia. They want to be known as the Republic of Kosovo. Serbia opposes this. The U.S., France and Britain have already recognized Kosovo's independence while Russia, China and other EU members are unhappy about the Serbia break away nation.

President Bush has declared that the "The Kosovars are now independent." Israel has yet to recognize Kosovo. Many photos have shown Kosovo residents waving Albanian flags.
