Serbia and Montenegro separated in 2006, to form two independent states, placing the two former Yugoslavia provinces amongst the youngest countries in the world. Montenegro faces the Adriatic Sea, with borders with Croatia and Boznia-Herzegovina to the west, Serbia to the north and east, and Albania to the south. Serbia, landlocked since 2006, shares the same neighbours but for Hungary to the north, Romania and Bulgaria to the east and Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia to the south east.

Many Serbs know how to speak English, but we recognize the value of our own language. And unlike Philippines, we do not want to accept the language of those who simply managed to exert power over others around the world, and force people to speak their language (i.e English). We were no one's colony and we owe nothing to the English speaking people, be it Americans or British, in fact, argument can be made that they owe us a thing or two.
For the sake of communication, so far interpreters have proven good enough, and those that do not like it will have to deal with it.

As others have pointed out since 2006, Serbia and Montenegro have split into two full independent states. Nationmaster is behind on this.
As for Kosovo, it's of course contentious, but a declaration of independence is not the same as recognition as an independent state.

WWI Copyright 2nd December 2004
In the four decades prior to August 1914, the western world and the countries in its sphere of influence were undergoing unprecedented changes in every area of society. Industrial expansion and wealth, both personal and national, had a profound impact on economic life. These changes lead to conflicts, jealousies and differences that were not easily reconcilable. Monarchies and democracies alike sought to cope with the changes and to protect their authority. Meanwhile, as the major European nations sought to expand their wealth and territories, they also looked for partners they could turn to in case of war. But with the expanding European economies, a majority of Europeans leaders were optimistic about the future in early June 1914. A small number of people, however, sensed a coming apocalypse.
In the weeks after the assassination, none of the critical leaders had the power or will to slow down the decisions, actions, reactions and attitude shifts of key government and military leaders. By August, millions of Europeans -- especially the military and diplomatic leaders of Austria-Hungary, Germany and Russia -- saw war as the way to save their honor, as well as to solve the internal and international problems that needed to be resolved.
