Prime Minister Rama said that the integrity of FYROM is important to Albania, as it relates to the stability of the region. “To us, integrity of FYROM is very important not only because there’s a large number of Albanians living there, but also because FYROM is a key player in the stability of the entire region”, said Rama.
Prime Minister Rama has demanded more collaboration to take place with FYROM, adding that after the agreement between Kosovo and Serbia, new times have come for the region and Balkan countries must see the possibility of collaboration with a new vision. “We have been, are and will always support the strengthening of collaboration between the two countries and two governments.
