Latest News from Albania
Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama on Twitter on Thursday condemned President Ilir Meta's refusal to endorse his nominee Gent Cakaj as new foreign minister, calling it "not just unconstitutional but also shameful".
He also issued an apology to Kosovo "about this shame", as Cakaj has citizenship of both Kosovo and Albania.
Rama previously said that "besides the border with Kosovo" he wants to also open Albania's borders with Macedonia, Montenegro and Greece.
Zaev stated on Thursday that he would "do the same, because it would benefit the region," the website Faktor.mk is reporting.
"I would immediately open all borders," the Macedonian PM is quoted as saying.
This has been assessed by Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic.
Speaking for Pink TV on Friday in Belgrade, Brnabic pointed out that due to all these decisions of the provisional institutions in Pristina she "does not see any indication of a compromise" - and instead believes that Belgrade and Pristina are increasingly removed from one.
The chairman of the Serbian National Assembly's Committee on Kosovo and Metohija added that this would place a part of the international community that supports Serbia before "a fait accompli."
