Republic of Gabon recognizes Republic of Kosovo

Update: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has reconfirmed on September 20th 2011 that the Sultanate of Oman has recognized Kosovo.

Kosovar media report that the Deputy Prime Minister Behxhet Pacolli has confirmed the recognition by Republic of Gabon. It also reports that the Verbal Note sent by the Sultanate of Oman was misinterpreted as a recognition. As a result the Ministry of Foreign Affairs it is claimed corrected this error and has removed Oman from the list of countries that have recognized the Repubic of Kosovo (see: MFA List). Nevertheless Oman still appears on the MFA list.

We would like to thank the people of Gabon for extending the hand of friendship and respect.
