Kosovo President Fatmir Sejdiu paid a visit to a two-year-old girl named independence born four minutes after Kosovo announced its split from Serbia.
The fledgling nation is celebrating the second anniversary of its unilateral declaration of independence from Serbia.
A festive mood prevailed in the capital Pristina despite the harsh reality of independence:
“ There are changes, naturally, but more is required from the government we want better results,” said one man.
Kosovo declared independence on February 17, 2008, close to a decade after a bloody war between its ethnic Albanian majority and Serb forces ended after NATO drove out the Serbian military.
The US and most European states recognise Kosovo’s independence.
