The European Union will support the UN plan for the Kosovo province independence , although several states, including Romania, pledged in favor of Serbia and denounced Martti Ahtisaari's plan, the EUObserver website informs.

According to the source, USA and EU announced their support for Kosovo's "under surveillance independence" plan, despite Russia's and Serbia's opposition. Cyprus, Spain, Greece and Slovakia also reject the idea.

Serb representatives rejected the mediator's plan to ensure extended sovereignty for Kosovo, under international surveillance. Albanian ethnics, who represent some 90% of the local populace, demand independence for the province.

Russia already warned that it may use its veto right to block the UN project, while China has not adopted yet an official position.
