His Eminence Metropolitan Dryinoupolis, Pogoniani and Konitsa Mr. ANDREAS,
made the following statements:
"I have often pointed out, that Albanians worn with impudence and insolence towards to Greece. And this proves successive events involving the Greek national community of Northern Epirus.
Albania raises border issue with Greece and plans to create ...the "Greater Albania".
And forgets that the current borders in the south at least, comes from the theft of Greek territory of Northern Epirus with the help mainly of Italy in 1914.
One more recent samples of the Albanian ingratitude, but also anti-Greek policy is that the Socialist Party of Prime Minister Edi Rama put in place third vice Albanian Parliament in Spetim Idriz, who is Chairman of the Nationalist Party of Chams.
However, developments in the neighbor are rapid, the Greek Government monitors awkward movements of Albanians, and risks of Northern Community in particular, by criminals 'Chams', which the Albanians obvious now incite anti-Greek sentiments.
Expressing once again our concerns, we pray and while crying to the government and citizens around the world: Gentlemen, wake up! The country and the Northern Epirus risk the End Times. Why, if we continue to indifferent, we will pay dearly one - God forbid - a national humiliation and destruction. "
