Lavrov: EU is passive on Great Albania ideas, Ohrid Framework Agreement violated

Lavrov: EU is passive on Great Albania ideas, Ohrid Framework Agreement violated

Belgrade, 22 February 2018 (MIA) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov referred late Wednesday to the situation in Macedonia in the context of "Great Albania ideas."

At a joint press conference with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic in Belgrade, Lavrov said there are concerns over EU's passivity regarding the initiative that had emerged from Tirana, the so-called Tirana Platform, which "is an open call for the creation of Great Albania."

"Following the recent parliamentary elections in Macedonia, the Parliament Speaker put the Albanian flag at the table in his cabinet. These days, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama proudly said that he had initiated the law giving the Albanian language a state status in Macedonia. This violates the Ohrid Framework Agreement, which provided relief after the crisis in Macedonia many years ago," said Lavrov. ik/09:32
