Kosovo and Serbia

On Sunday 17 February 2008 the Kosovo Assembly issued a Declaration of Independence stating: "We, the democratically-elected leaders of our people, hereby declare Kosovo to be an independent and sovereign state."

Serbian President Boris Tadic responded that Serbia "will do everything in its power to annul the arbitrary and illegal declaration of Kosovo's independence that Serbia will never recognise."

While Kosovo, Serbia, and the world community work to resolve the implications of the Declaration, Kosovo has become the 240th entry in the World Christian Database list of countries, which includes non-sovereign territories.

Data on Kosovo, including all Christian denominations and the wider religious makeup, have been extracted from the Serbian data and both updated so that the two can be analyzed separately.
