THE GERMANS REALIZED THE POSSIBLE DANGER: "Great Albania" is not just a fruit of SERBIAN IMAGINATION AND FEAR

The influential German media have finally warned about the threats in recent statements of Edi Rama and Hashim Thaci about the unification of Albanians from the region into "mini union"

Andreas Ernst for Noah Curher cajttung writes: Even though the union of Albania and Kosovo was recently dismissed as a fruit of Serbian imagination and fear, Albanian prime minister Edi Rama is no longer excluding it: "If the perspective of joining the European Union is lost, there will be creation of "small unions" in the region", said Rama last week in the interview for "Deutsche Welle".

He personally favors European Union, where lines of Albanians from motherland Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia and Montenegro would be squeezed together. Rama warned about "nightmare" which would engulf the region if other forces continued to suppress the EU and its influence in the region. He was referring to Russia and Turkey, whose presence is "strikingly" increasing.

Commentators associated his flirtation with Great Albanian nationalism with the upcoming elections. Edi Rama's speech could be understood as a wake-up call to the capitals of the member states of the European Union and a call not to leave Balkans on their own.

The fact, however, that this statement by Edi Rama ceased to be a taboo. Albanian politicians emphasized to their partners in the West that Great Albania was not an option for years. Now this is no longer the case.

The day after the declaration of Edi Rama, President of Kosovo, Hashim Thaci repeated something similar. He said, "if the EU shuts down the door to Kosovo, all Albanians will unite into a single nation to join the European family. "

Brussels was restrained on their actions. In ordinary parlance, a spokeswoman warned the country to respect good neighborly relations and non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries, stressing that all countries in the region have the prospect of joining the EU.

Belgrade and president Vucic responded less diplomatically. If he spoke about the unification of all Serbs in a single state, "he would be hanged by a mast in Brussels", said Vucic stressing that unanimous condemnation of Great Albanian visions is required. He added, "that project can not be achieved without entering into conflict with several states in the region", writes Noah Curher cajttung.
