REACTIONS ABOUT "OMONIA" DECISION FOR GREEK OFFICIAL LANGUAGE IN ALBANIA.
Greek minority in Albania demands second official language
Tuesday, 19 August 2008
Albania should declare the Greek language as the second official language in the country, just as Macedonia did with Albanian language. The organization of the Greek minority in Albania "Omonia" demanded this from the Government in Tirana.
At the session of Omonia's General Council, held Sunday in Saranda, it was said that the organization, inspired by the decision of Macedonian Parliament which declared Albanian as the second official language, deems that the Albanian Government should follow and declare Greek as the second official language in Albania.
"Koha Jone" newspaper states that the demand addressed to Sali Berisha's Government adds that Albania with that would respect the minority rights conventions it has signed. Official Tirana has not yet reacted to the request, "Koha Jone" states.
The minorities in Albania, including the Macedonian one, since a while are demanding from Tirana authorities to set up a census of the ethnic origin.
