Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Massimo D'Alema has just declared (17h11)that Italy will recognize Kosovo with the formula "paese indipendente sotto la sovranita' della comunita' internazionale"- "an independent nation under the sovereignty of the international community."

The issue of recognition will be discussed in the House next Wednesday.

At the same time, the British Minister of Foreign Affairs, David Miliband announced Great Britain's recognition of  Kosovo as an independent state.
