Lleshaj shoots Rama: Albania does not have the luxury of being indifferent to Kosovo
Former minister Sandër Lleshaj has criticized Prime Minister Rama's statements about the situation in Kosovo.
Lleshaj told News 24 that Rama's rhetoric did not serve Pristina. Referring to the prime minister's proposal for KFOR to take control of the north, Lleshaj said the special unit does not take permission from anyone for the areas it controls.
The former minister said that Albania does not have the luxury of showing indifference towards Kosovo as he emphasized that the tension between Rama and Kurti should not exist.
"The EU is still unable to even recognize Kosovo as an independent state as long as there are still member states that do not recognize it. KFOR does not take permission from anyone for the area it controls in Kosovo. I see no added value other than rhetoric in Rama's request for them.
KFOR deserves criticism for how it can be indifferent to such a military arsenal inside Kosovo, which I don't believe is the only one. Albania must understand well the role it has. We do not have the luxury to behave indifferently towards Kosovo. Kosovo knows what it wants, no one but them can know. Our role is to support them. Albania only has the duty to ask what they need and then help them
Albania could only help them by supporting them, for better or for worse. The tension between Rama and Kurt should not exist. Kosovo must go from behind in this journey. Even if they choose the wrong path. We do not know better than they about this circumstance. Kosovo does not suffer for talent, but for power. Even the effort for the draft was useless, because no one suffers from the lack of a draft" , he said.
