A total of 5,481 people had renounced their Kosovo citizenship in 2018, a majority of them now living in Germany, Austria and Slovenia.
Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic has confirmed this information.
Solomon Islands were among the countries that recently did not vote for Kosovo's admission to Interpol.
Koha writes that this state in Oceania has informed the Kosovo Foreign Ministry in writing about the withdrawal of the recognition of Kosovo.
This has been stated by representatives of EU's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, according to Pristina-based Albanian language daily Koha.
They are further quoted as saying that a legally binding agreement between Belgrade and Pristina on the normalization of relations "must guarantee a viable solution that is in line with international laws."
The initiative concerns a similar court being formed by the UN.
Two years ago, when the authorities in Pristina were hesitant to adopt the law to set up the Specialist Chambers - known also as the special court for KLA crimes - the US was also warning about the possibility of activation of a Plan B to form a new, similar court.
