A passenger train in Kosovo.

Transport in Kosovo is complicated by political issues relating to international recognition. The Republic of Kosovo declared independence in 2008 from Serbia. It currently has 110 diplomatic recognitions, of which 108 are members of the United Nations. Transport links to the north are fractured (especially rail transport) as Serbia does not recognise Kosovo's independence. Kosovo is recognised as sovereign by all other countries with which it shares a border.
