Note: Agricultural area and former province in the southern sector of former Yugoslavia. Its main languages are Albanian, Serbo-Croatian, and Turkish, and its principal cities are Péc, Priština, and Mitrovica. The population of about two million people predominantly comprise ethnic Albanians, with smaller populations of Serbs, Bosniaks, Goranis, Roma, Turks, and others. Serbs migrated to the territories of modern Kosovo in the 7th century, but did not fully incorporate them into the Serbian realm until the early 13th century. Beginning in the later 14th century, Albanians and Turks moved into the region. The area was under the control of Serbia following the 1999 war in Kosovo, after which Albanians in the area called for independence. In 2008, Kosovo declared its independence of Serbia; independence was recognized by the U.S. and several other members of the United Nations, though not recognized by Russia, Serbia, and numerous other countries in the EU. In 2010, the International Court of Justice ruled that Kosovo's declaration of independence was not in violation of the law.
