Leader of the Albanian party in power BDI (Democratic Union for Integration), Ali Ahmeti has demanded international engagement after the recent political tension in FYROM, following the publication of the surveillance affair by the Macedonian opposition.

Ahmeti addressed this request during a meeting that he had today (photo) with Germany’s special envoy on Southeast Europe, Ernst Reichel and German ambassador to Skopje, Christine Althauser. Ahmeti stressed that the meeting with the German diplomats discussed issues that require a solution.

In regards to the latest political tension in the country, Ahmeti said that the democratic capacity and the institutions of the country are once again facing a decisive challenge.

“Application of the Constitution, rule of law and political responsibility are integral elements of the solution of this process that requires professional integrity by judicial institutions and the media. BDI doesn’t apply double standards, when it comes to such sensitive issues which can cause destabilization in the political situation, therefore I demand to the international community to be directly involved in the management of this issue in order to guarantee the integrity of the process”, declared the leader of BDI.

Ahmeti also stopped on the role of Berlin by saying that it’s important in finding a solution for the name dispute with Greece. /ibna/
