Statehood - Secession
Dispute Settlement

The International Court of Justice issued an advisory opinion saying that Kosovo’s unilateral declaration of independence from Serbia in 2008 did not violate international law. China, which filed its pleading for the first time in the case, said it had taken note of the ruling. An FM spokesman said China has consistently held that state sovereignty and territorial integrity is a fundamental principle of contemporary international law and the basis of today's international legal order, and that the involved parties should seek a solution to the Kosovo issue acceptable to all through dialogue and within the framework of related UN Security Council resolutions.
