Edi Rama from Amsterdam: Like it or not, we are at the heart of Europe

The Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama, invited to an interview at "Balon" in Amsterdam, Holland, also spoke about the deadlock that has been created for Albania over the years regarding the opening of negotiations.

Asked about this issue, Rama did not spare jokes or comparisons as he said that Albanians, Serbs, Macedonians and Bosniaks are at the heart of Europe, whether they like it or not.

Rama even brought a comparison to the moderator, as he told him that we would not function without a stomach and would be affected by infections, stressing that the heart of Europe is these countries, the Balkans.

"I'm not talking about replacing enlargement. Enlargement will happen one day. God bless those who will be alive then. But in the meantime we need to be integrated as Europeans. We are not part of the European Union, but we are Europeans. And this cannot be placed on the map in Brussels or in Paris. This was decided by the almighty God who thought that the strangest people like Albanians, Serbs, Macedonians or Bosniaks should be at the heart of Europe. So you want to either ``doni, we are at the navel of Europe. And the European Union is the only geographical reality - as far as I know in history - that has an external border and an internal border. Imagine yourself with your stomach outside the border, or outside the target of your body. It doesn't work, you'll get infections. You can't walk around with your stomach in your pocket.The stomach should be in the right place,"-Rama said.
