Kosovo will most probably proclaim its independence on Sunday, February 17 and Kosovo leaders will then attempt to receive the recognition of the new state. However, the European Union has yet to find a common stand on the issue, but most EU member states seem willing to accept the independence of Kosovo.

Kosovo President Fatmir Sejdiu, quoted by the Romanian public radio, says that Romania as a EU member needs to fall in line with the overall political stand decided by the Union. He says he would not like to comment on the hesitant statement he heard from Bucharest authorities, but confided that Romanian leaders would eventually take into consideration the Kosovo people's freely stated will to gain independence.

Meanwhile, the UN Security Council meets behind closed doors on Thursday to discuss about the status of Kosovo. Council President Ricardo Alberto Arias said that the gathering was requested by Serbia who stated her firm opposition to any attempt of Kosovo separation, BBC informs, quoted by Romanian monitoring agency Rador.
