"If they rule out Pristina, Albania withdraws immediately"
"Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama had an essential condition that will not be subject to negotiations, which is that if Kosovo is excluded from the newly established co-operation, Albania will immediately withdraw", Cakaj said in an interview with KTV.
According to Koha Ditore, he stressed that "Kosovo represents a red line for Albania in relations with the Western Balkans", Kosovo online reports.
Cakaj added that Albania is guided by the following principle: "under no circumstances should decisions be made about reliefs without the involvement of Kosovo".
Cakaj also believes that the term "mini-Schengen" should be rephrased.
"It was a trilateral meeting of Edi Rama, Aleksandar Vucic and Zoran Zaev, after previous meetings. The meetings with Montenegro, Croatia and Kosovo will follow soon, and so on. It will not be a trilateral initiative", Cakaj claims, adding that Pristina, Podgorica and Sarajevo are invited to join the initiative".
