Albania welcomes Skopje-Athens agreement


Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama and Foreign Minister Ditmir Bushati welcomed Tuesday the name agreement reached between Macedonia and Greece.

“Two progressive leaders of the neighbouring countries made history today and showed the EU and the world how vision and willingness to overcome the past can find space for the future where it appears to be none! Hats off to Zoran Zaev and Alexis Tsipras. The Balkans is today a better place thanks to you both,” twitted PM Rama.

FM Bushati congratulated both countries for the breakthrough agreement on the name issue.

“This paves the way not just for one country but for the entire region towards the Euro-Atlantic family. Despite all odds, diplomacy works!,” twitted Bushati.
