The west supported Yugoslavia's independence?[edit]

I removed this part because it just doesn't make sense. By 1953, a Yugoslav state of some sort had been in existence for 34 years and neither its creation in 1918 nor its restoration after World War II were instances of any form of unilateral declaration of independence from another country. No external nation in 1953 had an opinion on Yugoslavia's independence any more than Switzerland's. The situation was not like today's disputed regions such as Somaliland, Kosovo or the Islamic State whereby a nation either "supports one's independence" or "supports the host nation's territorial integrity". If my removal was incorrect here, I hope the objecting editor will explain what was meant. --OJ (talk) 11:02, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
