Belgrade, 20 April 2017 (MIA) - The statements regarding a unification of Albania and Kosovo will remain only in the realm of wishful thinking of certain individuals and I urge them to refrain from presenting them publicly because it does not contribute to good relations in the region, Aleksandar Vucic has said.
"We plead with them, I repeat, we plead not to present such statements publicly, no matter what they think, because it does not contribute to good relations in the region, nor to creating an atmosphere of cooperation and joint work on important projects," the Serbian PM and President-elect told a press conference on Thursday in Belgrade, Tanjug reported.
He added that it was "clear to everyone that it (unification of Albania and Kosovo) will not happen regardless of somebody's wishes."
Vucic said that the Serbian government "does not wish to insult anyone and is not making any statements of the kind, because it is thinking only about a good and successful economy and a better standard of living."
Earlier this week, Albanian PM Edi Rama has said that unless the perspective of EU accession of Western Balkan countries continued to dwindle, it might lead to unification of Albania and Kosovo. ba/14:47
