Albania’s parliament on Thursday suspended a session on neighbor North Macedonia’s accession to NATO after an opposition lawmaker threw ink at the prime minister.

Lawmakers were to vote to ratify North Macedonia’s NATO accession. But the session was disrupted when Lulzim Basha, main opposition center-right Democratic party leader, harshly criticized the leftist government for corruption.

As Socialist Prime Minister Edi Rama admonished him, opposition lawmaker Edi Paloka threw ink at Rama.

Paloka was asked to leave the hall and suspended for 10 days from parliament.

Lawmakers later voted unanimously in favor of the NATO accession protocol for North Macedonia.
