Kosovo is a disputed territory in the Balkans. The partially-recognised Republic of Kosovo, a self-declared independent state, has de facto control over most of the territory, with North Kosovo being the largest Kosovo Serb enclave. Serbia does not recognise the unilateral secession of Kosovo and considers it a United Nations-governed entity within its sovereign territory, the Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija, according to the 2006 Constitution of Serbia.
