He said this was "113th diplomatic recognition," and that "diplomatic relations have been established between Singapore and Kosovo."

Kosovo President Hashim Thaci and other Pristina officials also tweeted this news, expressing their gratitude to the Asian nation.

Serbia reject the unilateral declaration of its southern province's independence, made in 2008, and considers it a violation of its territorial integrity.
