By constant repeating about their national unification Albanians succeeded to make it sound normal and nobody reacts to it any longer, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said commenting on the meeting of Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama and Kosovo President Hashim Thaci in Tirana yesterday.
Vucic made these remarks following his meeting with EU High Representative Federica Mogherini, adding he conveyed to Mogherini his dissatisfaction, as he said, over strange occurrences between Tirana and Pristina such are the talks on the national unification of Albanians.
He added if he were to speak about Serb national unification, “15 EU services and at least 15 foreign ministers would react.”
When reporters remarked that Rama and Thaci’s “national unification” talks yesterday also touched on annexing three municipalities in the south of central Serbia to Kosovo – Vucic ironically replied, “Only three?” He then said nothing would come out of that – and reiterated with such rhetoric, Albanians are “establishing a new normality.”
Nobody has reacted to this, he said, nor was it referred to in the conversation with Mogherini. “Federica’s not in favor of that, but nobody said anything,” Vucic said.
“They are saying impossible things and have accustomed the whole Europe to it” – and Serbia will, he says, “have it in mind, but the most important thing is that it behaves responsibly and in a balanced way, because in that way it can count on greater understanding.”
Vucic said he would tell Albanian President Ilir Meta, and Thaci himself – whom he will see during the Brdo-Brijuni gathering – what he thinks about the discussion between Rama and Thaci – but doubts that he will be able to explain to them how bad, dangerous and devastating it is for the region.
“It seems, however, Albanians do not want to hear even those who are much more important and more acceptable to them than me,” he observed.
