TIRANA – Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama reacted on Tuesday to an article written by the Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić who presented to his nation the reasons behind the question of negotiating on Kosovo and why that is an important question for the future of the country and the Serbian people.

There is still a long way to go, writes PM Rama on Facebook, to come out of a tunnel of a grave history of bloody atrocities, like the history of the Balkans is, where during the recent years are taken steps towards a breakthrough which until recent years even the most optimists could not even imagine.

“This piece of writing by Aleksandar Vučić, the newly-elected President of Serbia, could not be imagined a few years ago, although as they say, the devil is in the detail, and words and deeds are oceans apart… And Kosovo remains, like the Serbian president puts it, the Gordian knot, whose cutting or not cutting, through its recognition or not recognition from Serbia, I add, is the crystal clear choice between the darkness of the tunnel and the light of coming out of it”, writes PM Rama.

But certainly, he writes further, this is a choice which leads into the daylight, the strenuous and mutual effort to understand fully one another, through a relentless and rather painful dialogue, on behalf of love for the children of our two peoples and responsibility for the future in peace and prosperity of our two nations.
