According to Albania’s Tirana Times, Rama called on the two foreign ministries "to begin working on a common strategic draft that will unite Albanians by the year 2025". He added that "I know very well what Belgrade or any other place will say but I see Albanian union as a necessity in the path to the EU." He further remarked that the EU "should stop employing a two-faced approach."
