I note by the way that Kosovo failed to gain membership of UNESCO by 3 votes the other day so that was another diplomatic issue postponed for a while longer
Kosovo fails to get the votes! They vowed another vote will not be too long in the waiting.
Keep in mind the US could not support Kosovo because it lost its right to vote (dues). Japan, South Korea and Poland abstained. Spain and Ukraine voted No.
Kosovo's deputy foreign minister, Petrit Selimi, said: "It's a small setback in a very long journey. We already won a big battle when we achieved peace ... The majority of the world wants to see Kosovo inside Unesco. We were only three votes short."
Serbia's president, Tomislav Nikolić, said he welcomed the decision. "This is a just and moral victory gained in almost impossible conditions, when what is right cannot count on the support of the majority," he saidhttp://news.yahoo.com/unesco-begins-divisive-debate-kosovo-membership-105812632.html http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/nov/09/kosovo-fails-in-unesco-membership-bid
