Albanians to Join Forces in Support of Compatriots in Presevo Valley

Alternate Foreign Minister Gent Cakaj has said that Albania and Kosovo should have a unified foreign policy, especially on major issues. He made that statement after meeting Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kosovo, Meliza Haradinaj- Stublla, said a press release issued by foreign ministry in Tirana on Friday.
According to it, Albania and Kosovo signed several agreements aiming to improve cooperation between Albanians from Kosovo, Albania, Montenegro and the Presevo Valley in Serbia.
Agreements were signed by the Deputy Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs of Albania, Gent Cakaj, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kosovo, Meliza Haradinaj- Stublla and a representative of Albanian- majority Presevo Valley.
One of the agreements signed is on financial support for Albanians in Montenegro. It was also called on Albanian political parties in Presevo Valley to be unified.
“Now we have started a diplomatic action to increase the international sensitivity on the issue of Albanians in the Presevo Valley,” Cakaj said.
Haradinaj- Stublla said both countries are committed to the Euro-Atlantic path, while she mentioned the ongoing excavations in Serbia’s town of Kizevak, where mortal remains believed to be of Kosovo Albanian war victims were found. “As we are holding this conference, the excavations in Kizevak are continuing and I wish the families can face this double- pain with strength.”
Kosovo’s Speaker of Parliament Vjosa Osmani accused last May the Serbian government of implementing policies aimed at ethnically cleansing Albanians living in southern Serbia in violation of human rights.
Such a concern was also voiced strongly by Albanian deputy in Serbia Parliament Shaip Kamberi who compared the current government in Belgrade with the rule of Slobodan Miloshevic who exerted the cruelest genocide against Albanians in Kosovo in 1990s. /
