President Meta refused to decree Gent Cakaj in the duty of Foreign Affairs Minister. Meta sent this decree for revision to PM Rama. According to President Meta, Gent Caka does not fulfill the conditions for being Albania’s Foreign Affairs Minister, does not create trust, and does not provide the appropriate guarantees. Meta did not sign the decree for the dismissal of Foreign Affairs Minister Ditmir Bushati. Prime Minister Rama assessed Meta’s stance as unconstitutional.
“Independence, the territorial integrity of Kosovo and the decision of the International Court of Justice are indisputable for the Republic of Albania until the last second as President of my country,” Meta was quoted as saying.
