The international community is accustomed to the so-called “checkbook diplomacy” that has been used by China and Taiwan to pilfer each other’s diplomatic allies by exchanging diplomatic recognition for generous financial assistance packages. However, this same battle for diplomatic recognition and de-recognition is being played out between Serbia and its breakaway province of Kosovo. The United States and much of NATO has not only granted Kosovo diplomatic recognition over the objection of Serbia but has also pressured other countries to recognize Kosovo’s independence. This process has hit a major stumbling block amid charges from various parties that fake diplomatic letters and proclamations are being issued by nations that claim to de-recognize Kosovo. The worlds of international diplomacy and “fake news” have now been joined together. https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/12/02/de-recognition-of-kosovo-us-tries-to-stem-the-tide.html?fbclid=IwAR0A0wh7p-o_RGed40vuZo9wz3aUZ174HZs6oSVJYiySLAXodGSWRa9R-UI
