Kosovo scored a significant victory in its struggle to be recognised as a full and legitimate state yesterday when the United Nations' highest court ruled that its 2008 declaration of independence did not break international law.

After failing to prevent the declaration of independence, Serbia brought the case, claiming that the secession violated its territorial integrity and was against the principles of international law. The non-binding opinion of the court - passed in a 10-4 vote by court judges and read by court president Hisashi Owada - said that international law contains "no ... prohibition of declarations of independence" and therefore Kosovo's declaration "did not violate general international law."
