A frequent game in Kosovo-Serbia relations is played around claims related to this issue. Does Papua New Guinea recognise Kosovo? Did Sao Tome and Principe ever? A massive amount of work goes into creating something like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_recognition_of_Kosovo#Withdrawn_recognition <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_recognition_of_Kosovo#Withdrawn_recognition> , and if you ask diplomats how many countries recognise Kosovo, the most prudent will not give you a number but an approximation.
