The Speaker of the Parliament of Kosovo, Glauk Konjufca has started his 1-day visit to Tirana, where he was initially received by his counterpart, Gramoz Ruçi. The latter in his joint speech to the media said that Albania supports Kosovo which is on the right side of history, unlike Serbia which is "glorifying its criminals".
"Serbia has committed genocide, it has committed crimes against humanity and war crimes, it has hidden criminals and it has not cooperated with The Hague and today it is trying to glorify its criminals that it has protected and hidden. Kosovo is on the right side of history and has our support", said among others Ruçi.
On the other hand, Konjufca said that it is not enough for Kosovo and Albania to be good neighbors, but to be a single nation and this should be materialized in its policies.
"We are continuing the good tradition of our state that the first visit of the Speaker of the Assembly of Kosovo is paid to the Republic of Albania. We have the same interests because we are a nation, so I think we should have the same policies. We discussed the need to boost cooperation in several areas. I think that cooperation should be raised to another level, not as two good neighboring countries but as two countries that constitute a single nation," said Konjufca.
Citing the issue of the trial of former KLA leaders in The Hague, Konjufca said that the holy war of the Albanians in Kosovo was of the whole nation and should be protected by all.
