Osmani meets Albanian opposition leader, Basha

Acting President of the Republic of Kosovo, Vjosa Osmani, had today a meeting with the chairman of the Democratic Party Lulzim Basha during her three-day visit to Albania.

Addressing the media after the meeting, Ms. Osmani thanked the Albanian opposition leader and his team for the continuous support towards Kosovo’s institutions and for her request for the Albanian Assembly to adopt a resolution condemning Serbian genocide.

Osmani emphasized that Serbia and its alleys are trying now more than ever to hinder the truth about the war while calling on Albanian leaders to raise their voices in front of the world regarding the terrible crimes that Serbia has committed, so that justice is served.

“We request that Albania becomes the second country in the world after Kosovo to condemn the Serbian genocide through a legitimate resolution. I thank all Albanian institutions, especially President Meta and now, Mr. Basha, for their support towards this proposition, because it is necessary that all the terrible crimes that Serbia has committed be punished,” Ms. Osmani said.

In his word, the Albanian opposition leader after reiterating the continuous efforts of the Democratic Party for Kosovo’s international recognition pledged the adoption of the resolution by the Albanian Assembly.

“I pledge that the new Assembly of Albania will adopt, belatedly, the resolution to condemn the Serbian genocide in Kosovo and a special framework that will oblige all Albanian institutions to be in full support of Kosovo institutions," said Mr. Basha.

The DP leader further stressed that he strongly supports the Serbia-Kosovo dialogue towards Kosovo’s full recognition.
