President of Albania, Ilir Meta, spoke in critical tones about the option of Albanians being united in one state.
Speaking at a conference in Tirana organised by the George C. Marshall on the topic of security challenges in the Balkans, Meta said: “We are hearing things like why don’t all Albanians unite? But in this case why wouldn’t all the Serbs, Croats, Bosniaks do the same.”
He said such talk is part of an effort from authoritarian leaders to avoid internal accountability.
“Redrawing of borders is not so easy. We know how good relations Montenegro and Kosovo have but we also know what happened with a demarcation agreement. I want to be clear, we have all the opportunities, as we have shown, to be a factor of stability,” Meta said.
