The Albanian Prime Minister, Sali Berisha, has called for unity with Kosovo, and between Albanians.
"The national unity idea is based on the European principles and ideals and needs a lot of efforts. Because of that the Kosovo PM, Hashim Taci, and I will work towards removing all bariers that keep Albanians from feeling like a unity no matter where they live", Berisha said in an interview.
In his words, between both countries there must not be customs administration, and Albania and Kosovo should not look at each other as foreign countries, which has nothing to do with their sovereignty.
According to Berisha the relations with the Kosovo politicians are excellent, regardless of whether they are from the opposition or from the majority.
"We are opened for talks. We appreciate the role of every party. They all have significant part in the resistance and winning of Kosovo's independence", he added.
Berisha also thanked to all the tourists from Kosovo who visited Albanian resorts.
Local elections are being held today for the Kosovo municipalities of Peć and Priština. The polling stations are in Gračanica and Goraždevac, however.
