Venezuela refuses to recognize Kosovo’s independence

Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez Thursday said his government does not recognize the independence of Kosovo from Serbia, arguing that the move is part of "a plan of the empire" of the United States "to continue to undermine governments around the world."

According to Chávez, the declaration of Kosovo's independence may become "a very dangerous precedent" that may seriously harm peace worldwide.

Venezuela does not acknowledge Kosovo's independence. "We do protest against this, as this is part of the US pressure. I do not know how some countries in Europe accepted this. For example, would Italy like the southern region of Italy to become independent? Would any country like that? What about France, England or any country in Latin America?"

Further, Chávez showed "concern" that the United Nations are "playing along this game of the United States," a country Chávez branded as "decadent hopeless empire."
