Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremić ordered the top Serbian diplomatic envoy to this country to be urgently recalled to Belgrade for consultations.

The statement added that Podgorica’s decision today infringed on the regional stability and made more difficult the establishment of best possible relations between the neighboring countries, which the government in Belgrade had set as its priority.

Albanian Parliament Speaker, opposes NATO

"Even one foreign soldier, he will be passed on a vote by the Albanian Parliament"


Speaking for political show on "Opinion", of " TV Klan", Albania's Parliament Speaker Jozefina Topalli, has dismissed any speculation that deals with the continuing NATO request to facilitate crossing procedures, installation and sending troops of NATO missions inside and outside Albania, without taking decision by the Parliament of Albania.

"We will not break the Constitution for sovereignty against our interests. And a foreign soldier (NATO), it will be passed on a vote by the Albanian Parliament.

Two Ministers of Defense, Fatmir Mahdi (an year ago) and now Arben Imami, have proposed a bill, which authorizes the government of Albania to provide permission for the activity of NATO soldiers in Albania, by removing the right Parliament.

Premier Berisha sees as successful electoral propaganda, the national sovereignty, outside of NATO, opposing the strategic position of NATO in South Eastern Europe.

This clarifies that Albania, in the politically destabilized faze, NATO will find it difficult to intervene at an appropriate time, which understand that, for the Prime Minister Berisha, he would find much greater difficulties than in 1997"

A dangerous game for Berisha..

However, Article 2 of Law Nr 10 100, of March 26, 2009, ..for "the accession of Albania in NATO", states that "the Council of Ministers decides on the transfer of foreign troops from the territory of Albania .." The vote by the Albanian Parliament. (Legal document)

Anyway, Sali Berisha, wants to place NATO in a serious position, putting the face with the Constitution of Albania, a very dangerous game of Prime Minister Berisha ..

Albania; Census 2011, included ethnic and religious affiliation

The Albanian Government promises once again, census religion and nationality, but the Greek community is pessimistic about this transparency, because they do not believe to the Albanian institutions, which constantly have manipulated census

TIRANA-For the first time, the Albanian census will include ethnic and religious. The news has given State Minister Genc Pollo, who has declared that General population census will take place in 2011.

Pollo has stated that "population and housing census is an important activity that the government will take in 2011, that serves everyone and gives overview of social and economic developments in the country".

According to him, after this process will become a more just policy in the distribution of money and using them effectively. "The New questionnaire is contained ethnic and religious affiliation. Registration will be conducted in a professional manner, conducted by INSTAT and the support of experts from the EU and internationally" - he said, adding that registration will cost more, but is important as a basis to bring important data.

However, only a year ago, INSTAT made census population of Albania, claiming 4.2 million inhabitants, while for the Greek community it said that constitute 1% of the total population, or 4.2 thousand inhabitants. While according to "Omonia" Organization, 2/3 of total population in Southern Albania, have Greek old origin.

Nomikos, Director of the Research Institute for European and American Studies, laments the lack of cooperation among intelligence services in the Balkans, notes a lack of cooperation in that area and an unwillingness to share information, which only benefits international terrorists.

Kosovo police interrupt minister’s visit
13 January 2010 | 12:59 | Source: Tanjug
PRIŠTINA -- Kosovo police, KPS, have interrupted the visit of Minister for Kosovo Goran Bogdanović to the Serb enclave of Štrpce.

The enclave in located in the south of the province.

Police told the minister that he “cannot move in that area without the Kosovo government permission”.

After he visited the village of Sevce on his way to Štrpce, Bogdanović and his team were stopped by a large number of KPS members, including those from a “special unit”, dubbed “Rosa”, said reports.

According to the same reports, Bogdanović asked to see a written statement from the government in Priština prohibiting him movement. But a regional KPS commanders said that he had an oral order that Bogdanović “must leave Kosovo”.

The armed members of KPS escorted the minister “toward northern Kosovo”, while it was unclear whether he would go to the administrative line checkpoint of Merdare or to the northern part of Kosovska Mitrovica, which he insisted on, said Tanjug.

Bogdanović commented on the incident by saying that it was an ill thought-through move by Kosovo’s temporary authorities, since he was a resident of Kosovo and “as such, regardless of the ministerial office, had a right to free movement in Kosovo”.

“This is a demonstration that there is no freedom of movement in Kosovo and that local Serbs, residents of Kosovo, myself included, are being denied our basic human right,” said he.

Bogdanović added that he “did not wish to create incidents”, and repeated that today’s events were “the best example of how Serbs live in Kosovo”.

The bomb that exploded outside the Greek parliament building, right next to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, in central Athens on January 9, was yet another ringing reminder – no pun intended – that the Greek Government, Greek politicians, and all the Greek “social partners” are not doing what they are supposed to do in order to ensure this country exists in a state of reasonable domestic peace, security, and stability. Setting aside for the moment the heroic, but regrettably boilerplate and palpably counterfeit, words of Greek politicians that followed the blast, we need to focus, yet again, on issues of strategic clarity coupled with those of operational effectiveness.

In a broader sense, it matters little who placed the bomb only a few paces away from the two presidential guards posted to watch over the Tomb, thus putting their lives in imminent danger. It is certainly important to eventually capture the physical perpetrators of this act of grave dishonor and insult upon all of Greece's war dead; it is, no doubt, imperative to satisfy the need to bring to justice the cowards in the shadows, who spat upon the gravestone of those who died in battle in order for our modern “angry” hoodies to come to possess the natural ability to breathe today. What is though even more fundamentally important is to face – and defeat – the reality of inaction, obfuscation, and conscious avoidance that has always dominated this country's nominal counter-terror policies...............

Albanians refuse to leave home despite flooding

Heavy rains have forced the authorities to open the gates of the dam at the hydroelectric power station at Vau i Dejes, flooding several villages near the Adriatic sea.

Surrounded by raging waters, the villagers of Obot in northern Albania are determined to stay put to secure their modest homes, which were flooded after heavy rains pelted this rural region for days.

"If God has decided that I should die here, let it be. At least I will die in my house, with the only cow that I still have," 60-year-old Gjon Cepi said somberly from the first floor of his little house.

The ground floor is already flooded and only the contours of several pieces of furniture are visible under the murky waters.

Obot, a small village with about 450 inhabitants, ten kilometres (six miles) north from Shkodra, the main town in the area, has come to national attention after disastrous floods swallowed more than ten thousand hectares (25,000 acres) of this Albanian farming region.

A group of around a hundred villagers has refused to be evacuated from their homes, despite calls by the authorities.

The four kilometre-long road that links the village to the rest of the country has also been flooded. Military units take more than 30 minutes to reach Obot by boat.

The crossing itself is difficult, due to strong currents and numerous tree trunks and animal corpses floating in the water.

Visitors to Obot are greeted by an eerie silence only occasionally broken by the cries of animals in distress. Rain continues to pelt the village for hours on end.

Old Cepi could not accept the idea he had to leave his home, as everything his family has ever had was invested there.

"[The earnings of] my son's ten years of working in Italy are totally annihilated," he said.

In a neighbouring house, Florian Franajn - who has been working in Greece - said he had invested 15,000 euros (£13,370) to plant decorative trees and a greenhouse to grow flowers.

"All was lost in just three hours," 30-year old Franajn sighed.

He said he did not expect state compensations for his loss.

"People have lost their houses and their cattle here. Who will think about my flowers and my trees? Only God will help me," he said.

Army captain Gani Boceri said that his people were going door-to-door to convince inhabitants to leave their homes.

"But there are some who want to remain. There are others who want to return the next day to see what has happened to their houses," Bocari said.

With his 800 soldiers, Bocari's job was to assist and evacuate the flood-stricken with their meagre belongings.

"The real damage of this catastrophe will be seen in the weeks to come, when the water withdraws," predicted Marin Pena, a schoolmaster in Obot.

Heavy rains have forced the authorities to open the gates of the dam at the hydroelectric power station Vau i Dejes, causing flooding of several villages near the Adriatic sea.

Arjan Starova, Albania's deputy defence minister, who visited the flooded region, promised that the state would compensate material damages.

The prime minister, Sali Berisha, who visited Shkodra on Monday, praised the fact that no one had died in the floods.

But the Albanian leader added he was worried about economic consequences of the floods in the fertile region considered as Albania's breadbasket.

K. Albanians oppose new status talks

The Kosovo government and political parties in Priština reject all possibilities of new status negotiations with Serbia regarding the status of Kosovo.

This is according to Albanian language daily Zeri, that quotes Kosovo Albanian government spokesman Memli Krasniqi as saying that “the Kosovo government will never agree to negotiations with Belgrade regarding Kosovo’s status. The status of our country is irreversible.”

Reacting to a report in Belgrade daily Blic yesterday that the government in Belgrade was waiting for the opinion of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the legality of the unilateral declaration of independence in order to call a meeting of the UN Security Council for restarting negotiations on Kosovo’s status, Krasniqi said that “there can only be negotiations with Serbia regarding other questions that are in the joint interest of the two countries.”

The opposition in Kosovo is also against new talks, stating that “Serbia itself should give up on this strategy.”

“No one in Kosovo can return the situation to the period before the talks with Serbia,” Secretary General of the Alliance for the Future of Kosovo Burim Ramadani said.

Political analyst Ilir Deda said that negotiations with Serbia are possible, “but only regarding issues such as European integration”.

“There will be talks for issues that Serbia and Kosovo need to solve in order to enter the European Union. The international community will not condition Serbia to recognize Kosovo, but it will demand a normalization of relations between Serbia and Kosovo,” he said.

This analyst told Zeri that the EU will not allow “Serbia or Kosovo” to move ahead in European integrations “without some sort of mutual agreement”.

ND opposes migrant citizenship bill

Main opposition New Democracy will vote against a tabled draft bill changing, among others, the country's naturalisation code, ND leader Antonis Samaras underlined on Monday, referring to a high-profile initiative by the government to grant citizenship to eligible second-generation children of migrants.

Samaras, a former minister who recently assumed the party's helm, also pledged to repeal any provisions of the draft bill when his party comes to power.

Moreover, the ND leader repeated his warning towards the government not to proceed with the mass legalisation of migrants, as he said, "without preconditions now being implemented by most European countries".

"The government did not listen to this plea," he charged, adding that he has already conveyed a memorandum to the relevant interior minister spelling out the reasons that ND's deputies will oppose the draft bill.

"In the memo there are comparisons with measures taken by other European countries, so it can clearly be demonstrated that ND is within the European reasoning, whereas the government bill is beyond any reasoning; it simply serves obvious petty political expediencies," he said.

Additionally, he said other European countries not faced with the wave of illegal immigration now plaguing Greece have, nevertheless, adopted stricter conditions for granting naturalisation and citizenship.

"Instead of being careful ... we are moving away from common sense, our (European) partners and our own best interests," he said.

Samaras said the specific draft bill will facilitate the even greater flow of illegal immigrants towards Greece, "who will merely have children in Greece, which in turn will automatically be granted Greek citizenship, thereby legalising their parents..."

"Greeks are a people, not a population. What transforms a 'geographical area' into a unified country and the 'local population' into a people is its identity," he emphasised.

Samaras countered that the Greece-born children of legal migrants in the country should be granted, following an application, citizenship upon reaching adulthood and after completing nine years of compulsory education.

"Greece is an open, democratic society and we do not want to turn the country into a closed fortress, however, we will not allow it to become lawless," he concluded.

“Fight for new Kosovo talks in 2010”
11 January 2010 | 10:01 | Source: Blic
BELGRADE -- Belgrade daily Blic writes that the Serbian government will be calling for new negotiations for the Kosovo status solution in 2010.

Steps have been taken to immediately, “literally the day after the opinion of the International Court of Justice in The Hague is given, to call a meeting of the UN Security Council”, says the newspaper.

“A fast push and fast progress” will then begin in order to get new negotiations and finding a solution between Belgrade and Priština, Blic writes.

The daily’s source said that without this, Serbia’s strategic goal of EU membership will not be possible.

“The open question of Kosovo is halting Serbia’s EU progress, hurting relations with American as the largest world power without whom there is no political or economic progress, it is also straining relations with the most influential and prosperous European countries and making Serbian unable to become a true leader in the region, because real friendly relations with its neighbors are not possible,” the article continues.

In the region, only Romania and Bosnia-Herzegovina have not recognized Kosovo’s unilaterally proclaimed independence, and of the others, only Montenegro has yet to send an ambassador to Priština, Blic says.

Belgrade, “naturally”, writes this newspaper, reacts negatively to ever step towards cooperation with Kosovo by its neighbors, “deteriorating” relations in the region.

Even though political analysts and experts maintain that the search for Kosovo solution cannot be fast or easy, the government is dedicated to making “fast progress” in solving Serbia’s main problem this year, Blic writes.

Albanian hypocrisy:

Ekrem Spahia: "Thanks for the help from the Greek Government"

The Chairman of King ultra Nationalist Party and Defense vice Minister in the government of Sali Berisha, Ekerem Spahia has changed the "Mask", returning to a "philo Greek" as usually happens in Albania. During his entire political career, he together with Republican Sabri Godo, have named Greece as the greatest enemy of the Albanian nation.

The Television "Top Channel" has found a real paradox telling the nationalist politician changing guise, whenever the need calls his boss, Prime Minister Sali Berisha for the relationship with the Greeks. Spahia thanked Greek team for the help in floods in Shkodra.

In 1997, President Sali Berisha used secret service chief, Bashkim Gazidede, and deputy Blerim Cela, to declare that the uprisings in Albania against Sali Berisha, had organized Greece and CIA.

So, in 1998 coup d`etat, the man nearest Berisha, Ekerem Spahia, was the organizer of the attack against the socialist government, which called "the Greek government of Fatos Nano".

The paradox continue .....Whenever disaster happen in Albania, the Greek forces take the honors as a thanksgiving for humanitarian aid, while in everyday life of Albanian policy, Greece attacked by officials of Tirana, as the mostly 'enemy' with threatens Albania.
