In a tweet, Rama asked Vucic if that statement was a joke?
Albanian Prime Minister attached Vulin's statement from his Ministry's website in Serbian in which he accused Rama of "continuing to work on creating Greater Albania by saying that the Albanian port of Drac will belong to Kosovo.
The headline of Vulin's statement was "What you give to the Shiptars (the name for the Albanians in their language, but a pejorative reference to them in Serbian), you cannot forbid to the Serbs."
It was precisely Rama’s statement saying that Port of Durres will “de facto” become the Port of Kosovo that sparked many reactions in Serbia, including that of the Minister of Defense Aleksandar Vulin.
The latter said in an official press release, that such statement was proof that the Albanian Prime Minister continues to work for a “Greater Albania”.
“By stating that the port of Durres will belong to Kosovo, Edi Rama continued with his effort to create a ‘Greater Albania’. As always, the European Union will remain silent and will not do anything. Albanians are allowed to unite and seize other people’s territories, but Serbs are not allowed to unite even in their own country. This is a repetition of a lie that ‘Greater Albania’ is a natural Albania and the Serbs united in one state are a threat to peace,” said the Serbian Minister of Defense.
“Only united Serbs can stop ‘Greater Albania’ and the sooner we unite institutionally, the sooner the time of peace will start in the Balkans. You cannot forbid Serbs to do the things that you allow Albanians,” his statement said.
Reacting to "Rama's new provocations,"Vulin said the "European Union will, as always, keep silent and do nothing," and the Albanians "can unite and grab territories, while the Serbs cannot be united, not even in their own country."
