Ghana has decided to withdraw recognition of Kosovo as an independent state, Eurasia Diary reports citing AA.
 
According to state-run Radio Television of Serbia, the government in the West African nation has informed Serbia about its decision via an official letter.
 
Ghana had recognized Kosovo in 2012 after the latter declared independence from Serbia in 2008, but Belgrade insists the country remains part of Serbia. Since then, tensions have persisted between Kosovo’s ethnic-Albanian majority and a small Serb minority in the north.
 
The Ghanaian letter dubbed the country’s decision to recognize Kosovo as “premature”, according to the Serbian broadcaster.
 
Meanwhile, Serbia's Foreign Ministry welcomed the “important decision” by Ghana that has become the 16th state to withdraw recognition of Kosovo.
 
Kosovo’s independence is recognized by over 100 countries, including the U.S., Britain, France, Germany, and Turkey.
 
Serbia, Russia, and China are among the countries which have not yet recognized its independence.
