European Union spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic criticized a recent comment by Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama, who said that, if EU perspective for the Balkans is lost, the option to unite Albania and Kosovo may be put on the table.
The Western Balkans region has a clear European perspective, as just recently confirmed at the European Council. We are working with all partners in the region towards this goal, based on principles of reconciliation and regional cooperation. Any form of political interference is detrimental to the consolidation of good neighbourly relations", Kocijancic said.
In the Politico interview, which caused reaction across the region, Rama was also asked about the accusations of his interference in Macedonian politics, where he pushed three parties that represent ethnic Albanians to form a joint platform. The adoption of this platform blocked the Government formation process in the country, after President Gjorge Ivanov found it to be unconstitutional.
