Kurti on Mini-Schengen: Why the rush, Albania could have waited

Vetevendosje leader Albin Kurti has reacted to the initiative for setting up a Western Balkans Mini-Schengen area saying this project should not start with Serbia but with Kosovo and Albania.

He said the meetings between Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and North Macedonia Prime Minister Zoran Zaev were "missteps".

Kurti said he did not see why the rush for creating this area and added that Albania could have waited for the creation of the new government of Kosovo.

"This thing does not begin with Serbia, it begins with Kosovo and Albania, continues with Croatia and Bulgaria, Sarajevo authorities, authorities in Podgorica, Skopje and finally Belgrade. Because such as it is, unrepentant about he wars and crimes, in continuous flirting with Putin's Moscow, it cannot be treated with priority," Kurti said at the Multicultural Festival of Roma, Ashkali and Egyptians.
