Albania, Kosovo prime ministers inaugurate highway
The prime ministers of Albania and Kosovo inaugurated Sunday the first highway link through northern Albania's rugged mountains, nearly two decades after the fall of communism in Albania.
Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha met his counterpart from Kosovo, Hashim Thaci, at the last tunnel dug along the 164-mile (265-kilometer) road. The meeting was seen as a step toward stronger ties between ethnic Albanians on both sides of the border.
Several thousand people marked the event by dancing to traditional music and waving Albanian, Kosovan and American flags. "Today we have decided that there are no mountains, no obstacles, there is nothing that spiritually or physically stops this nation," Berisha told the crowd.
But according to Albanian opposite the inauguration of highway link Pristina - Tirana is the biggest corruption of Berisha government.
Anyway for the Albanians in Kosovo, FYROM and diaspora, the inauguration of highway is finally the aspiration of Greater Albania, that unites the Albanian lands on the Balkans.
