Kosovo's Deputy Prime Minister said the ethnic Albanian dominated region is ready for independence from Serbia, but is urging citizens to stay calm.

The move is strongly opposed by Serbia and its ally Russia, as the Serbian president has told the UN Security Council that his country will never recognize an independent Kosovo.

The United States and some European countries have reaffirmed their support for Kosovo's independence drive.

China has called for the international community to pursue a solution accepted by both Belgrade and Pristina.
