Mokra Gora (Serbian Cyrillic: Мокра Гора, lit.''Wet Mountain'', pronounced [môkraː ɡǒra]; Albanian: Malet e Mokrës or Mokragorë) is a mountain on the border between Serbia, Kosovo[a] and Montenegro. It is part of the Prokletije mountain range. It has two peaks higher than 2,000 m (6,562 ft). The highest is Pogled at 2,156 m (7,073 ft), and the other is Beleg at 2,142 m (7,028 ft). The Pogled peak is shared between Serbia and Kosovo, while Beleg is on the tripoint.

Notes and referencesEdit

Notes:

a.   ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008. Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the 2013 Brussels Agreement. Kosovo is currently (this note self-updates) recognized as an independent state by 98 out of the 193 United Nations member states. In total, 113 UN member states recognized Kosovo at some point, of which 15 later withdrew their recognition.
