meta_maliTIRANA – Albanians have never been, nor will they be a problem in Macedonia, as for the accusations surrounding the so called “Tirana platform”, it is a political game, said the Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama, in an interview for the web portal Dialogplus.ch, reports a Meta correspondent in Tirana.

Rama in the interview added that Macedonians know very well that Albanians are a constitutive factor in a country whose rights can not be seen and treated as a service to them.

“The platform is written and approved by the Albanian parties in Macedonia. I had the pleasure and obligation to help them, not the platform, but also in easing communications between the parties”, said Rama.

As for the situation in the region, the Albanian Prime Minister stated that political conflicts exist, which according to him, is a result of early parliamentary elections in the countries, and not reality.

When asked whether the borders in the Balkans are safe, and whether a danger exists of them being replaced Rama says he will answer that question, but first all the Balkan countries should be directed towards integration in the European Union, however if this process was to fail then the discussion over borders will have to be re-visited.
