Northern Ireland?[edit]

What's Northern Ireland doing on this list? 24.180.56.157 (talk) 18:58, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

Did you look at the WP:TITLE of the article? Self-explanatory. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 04:58, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
Northern Ireland is a territory governed under an international accord. This is a relatively rare situation that means sovereignty is more complicated in NI that in most other parts of Europe, so it's included in a distinct list. Fitnr 21:38, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia articles are not necessarily reliable as sources - not least because they are sometimes hijacked by special interest groups. You need to look at reliable sources. For example, [www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-17398605 this BBC article] stated that Armenia is in Europe.-- Toddy1 (talk) 09:28, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Liberland[edit]

What about Liberland? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.181.151.2 (talk) 13:36, 18 December 2015 (UTC)

It isn't a sovereign state, it's an unrecognized micronation with no population. - SantiLak (talk) 04:22, 19 December 2015 (UTC)

Kosovo[edit]

I was perusing this page and noticed the entry on Kosovo contained a biased, incorrect and poorly written statement, that Serbia "along with the rest of UN members..." considers Kosovo a breakaway province. Not only is the English poor for its lack of a definite article before "UN" but it is completely untrue that the entirety of the UN considers Kosovo a province of Serbia. I surmise, based on the telltale Slavicism of the omitted def. article and the national bias that the author of the statement was a Serb who was operating on incorrect information.

I don't disagree, Alexander, but I see that you have edited our article appropriately now... BushelCandle (talk) 04:30, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
