ata_maliTIRANA – Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama, on Wednesday reacted to a decision of the Macedonia’s President Gjorge Ivanov to refuse to give Social Democrat leader Zoran Zaev the mandate to form a government, claiming that a platform of the Albanian political parties there came from another country.

“Mister Ivanov, Albanian isn’t the enemy’s language, but the language of a constituent nation in Macedonia. There can be no Macedonia without Albanians, dear President,” Rama stated via Twitter.

Macedonia’s President appeared to the media a day ago to announce his decision to reject awarding the mandate to form the government to the country’s opposition leader.

“The constitution and my consciousness forbid me from giving a mandate to anyone who undermines independence and sovereignty of Macedonia,” Ivanov said.
