Minister: Greater Albania poses risk to region

BELGRADE -- Creation of a “Greater Albania” would harm not only Serbs but also other neighboring nations, Serbian Minister for Kosovo Goran Bogdanović has said.

He added that this would also destabilize the entire region and that the Serbian government opposed forming any unreal countries.

“It is well known that the ever since the 'Prizren League', the Albanians tend to create a 'Greater Albania' and this is nothing new. But now everyone knows how dangerous such a project could be and how much it would threaten other nations and their cultures,” the minister told Belgrade-based daily Večernje novosti.

“The illegal declaration of independence of Kosovo was only an initial step by Albanians in making the mosaic of the ‘Greater Albania’,” Bogdanović was quoted as saying.

“The whole international community should therefore urgently send out a warning alarm,” he added.

“The international community must seriously address this problem and prevent the creation of some unreal state on the territory of another sovereign and internationally recognized country,” the minister stressed.
