Arguing against Kosovo Independence, Russia draws parallel to TRNC

Kosovo's unilateral declaration of independence would �open a Pandora's box" in Europe, Russia's First Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov warned yesterday. Addressing the 44th Munich Defense Policy Conference, Ivanov argued against independence for Kosovo, adding that if European Union countries recognize Kosovo, then logically it would follow that they recognize the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC).
