"On December 27, 1917, Serbia became the first country in the world to openly endorse the Balfour Declaration. "

"The Serbian letter marked the first time any government had referred to the yet-to-be-born Jewish state as “Israel,” presaging the name that would be adopted by the nascent republic three decades later."
