The Hague International Court of Justice published on Thursday the consultative report on the legality of Kosovo's independence declaration. The rulling is not compulsory but is expected in the world because it can have serious repercussions over several separatist movements in the world. Romania did not acknowledge Kosovo's independence and was among the 5 EU member countries that did not together with Greece, Spain, Slovakia and Cyprus.

If the decision sets a new principle, new states will be created in the world, which would trigger instability in several regions, Serbian President Boris Tadici declared for Tanjug, quoted by Reuters. Kosovo declared its independence on February 17, 2010. The new state was acknowledged so far by 69 countries including the US and 22 of the 27 EU member states.
