Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic fiercely condemned the fact that the flag of Albania was displayed during a meeting between Kosovo Albanian political leader Albin Kurti and Norwegian officials.

Kurti, whose Vetevendosje (Self-Determination) party won more votes than its rivals at Sunday’s parliamentary elections, met with Norwegian Ambassador Jens Eric Grondahl and Foreign Ministry envoy for the Balkans Arne Sanes Bjornstad in Pristina with a large Albanian flag displayed in the room.  

Dacic said that the flag shows support for the idea of creating a Greater Albania. “Self-Determination leader Albin Kurti is known as an advocate of a so-called Greater Albania. Anyone who meets with the man aspiring to become the prime minister of so-called Kosovo with the flag of Albania is legalizing the idea of a Greater Albania, that is the annexation of Kosovo to Albania,” Dacic is quoted as saying in a press release.  

It added that all UN member states, especially European countries, have to refrain from granting legitimacy to those provocations.  

The media in Pristina said that Kurti keeps a flag of Albania displayed in his office but the ambassadors of Germany and the United States were not photographed in that office when they met with him.
