Observers consider them Albanized (Albanisation) Romanies (Romani people), but they do not self-identify as such. Prior to the Kosovo War of 1999, Albanized Roma registered themselves as Albanians. Now they are divided by identifying with two different groups, although the people share a culture, traditions and language (Albanian). thumb 140px right Melihate Ajeti (File:Meli 1.JPG) '''Melihate Ajeti''' (Serbian Cyrillic: Мелихате Ајети) (born October 9, 1935 in Pristina, Kingdom of Yugoslavia, died March 26, 2005 in Pristina, Kosovo, Serbia and Montenegro) was a Kosovar Albanian (Albanians in Kosovo) actress.

Kosovo

'''Kosovo''' (

Kosovo is landlocked in the central Balkan Peninsula. Its capital and largest city is Pristina. It is bordered by the Republic of Macedonia and Albania to the south, Montenegro to the west, and the uncontested territory of Serbia to the north and east. In antiquity, the Dardanian Kingdom (Dardani#Dardanian Kingdom), and later the Roman province of Dardania (Dardani#Roman Dardania) was located in the region. It was part of Serbia in the Middle Ages, and many consider the Battle of Kosovo of 1389 to be one of the defining moments in Serbian medieval history (Medieval Serbia). After being part of the Ottoman Empire from the 15th to the early 20th century, in the late 19th century Kosovo became the centre of the Albanian independence movement with the League of Prizren. As a result of the defeat in the First Balkan War (1912–13), Ottoman Empire ceded (Treaty of London (1913)) Vilayet of Kosovo to the Balkan League; Kingdom of Serbia took its larger part, while Kingdom of Montenegro annexed the western part (Metohija) before both countries became a part of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia after World War I. After a period of Yugoslav unitarianism (Yugoslavism) in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, the post-World War II Yugoslav (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) constitution established the Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija within the Yugoslav constituent republic of Serbia (Socialist Republic of Serbia).

Long-term severe ethnic tensions between Kosovo's Albanian (Albanians) and Serb populations left Kosovo ethnically divided, resulting in inter-ethnic violence, including the Kosovo War of 1998–99. Schabnel, Albrecht; Thakur (ed), Ramesh (ed). ''Kosovo and the Challenge of Humanitarian Intervention: Selective Indignation, Collective Action, and International Citizenship'', New York: The United Nations University, 2001. Pp. 20. The war ended with a military intervention of NATO (NATO bombing of Yugoslavia), which forced the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia to withdraw its troops from Kosovo, which became a UN protectorate (United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo) under UNSCR 1244. On 17 February 2008 Kosovo's Parliament declared independence (2008 Kosovo declaration of independence). It has since gained diplomatic recognition as a sovereign state by . Serbia refuses to recognise Kosovo as a state, although with the Brussels Agreement of 2013 (Brussels Agreement (2013)) it has accepted the legitimacy of Kosovo institutions and its special status within Serbia. The agreement solidified that public institutions in Kosovo are exclusively operated by Kosovo's elected government, and not Serbia's.

Kosovo is not a member of the United Nations due to its lack of diplomatic recognition from several countries. It is, however, a member of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, International Road and Transport Union (IRU), Regional Cooperation Council, Council of Europe Development Bank, Venice Commission and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. Within the European Union (European Union member states), 23 of 28 members have recognised the Republic; Cyprus, Greece, Romania, Slovakia, and Spain have not.
