Obama, Clinton welcome Kosovo declaration
One of the Democrats' presidential hopefuls, Clinton, called for a speedy recognition of Kosovo's independence.

Her rival, Obama, echoed the same sentiment, and added that he hoped Kosovo's authorities and people will do everything to make it a positive example of democracy and rule of law.

Another democrat, Biden, who is the Foreign Policy Committee chair in the U.S. Senate, said he will soon call on his colleagues to join him in "expressing the Senate's support for Kosovo's independence".

Ethnic Albanians in Kosovo Sunday declared independence from Serbia.
