Serbian Foreign Affairs Minister Ivica Dacic strongly condemned the statement by Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama, who hinted at the possible unification of Albania and Kosovo. Speaking with Politico, Rama said that he does not wish this unification to happen, but that it might be on the table if the European Union integration of the Balkans fails.
"Rama's statement is another conformation that all Albanians are standing behind a joint ideological program to create a Greater Albania. This constitutes danger for the peace and stability of the Balkans and whole of Europe. Imagine what would happen if Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said that it is possible to unite Serbia with Republika Srpska in Bosnia, unless we are allowed to join the EU?", Vucic said. Serbia considers Kosovo to be part of its territory.
In the interview, Rama was also asked about his interference in the political process in Macedonia. He said that he did not prepare a joint platform for the parties that represent ethnic Albanians in Macedonia, but facilitated its preparation.
