BELGRADE - Serbian FM Ivica Dacic said Thursday he would announce the name of another courageous country that had revoked its decision to recognise Kosovo's independence after Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic's return from New York.

Such decisions are very important for Serbia, Dacic said in a statement to Tanjug.

"We underestimate those who make such decisions, but that takes great courage because big powers lobbying for Kosovo's interests are backing Pristina," he said.

"It is true that a 15th country has revoked and suspended its recognition of Kosovo. The decision was not made yesterday, their note was dated on St Vitus's Day (June 28), which carries a certain message. I still have not revealed what country it is, and I will not until the president returns," Dacic responded when asked to name the country.

Togo has been mentioned as the latest country to de-recognise Kosovo while Dacic himself has said Somalia was to reconsider its decision to recognise Kosovo over the issue of Somaliland.
