Kurti appeals to North Macedonia: Closer to Albanians and Bulgarians and away from Serbia

Prime Minister Albin Kurti, during his stay in Tetova, has called on North Macedonia to be closer to the Albanians of Kosovo and Albania as well as the Bulgarians and as far away from Serbia as possible. According to him, this way Skopje will be closer to European and Western values. Also, Kurti requested that there be no delays in the construction of the road axis between Prizren (Kosovo) and Tetova (North Macedonia) as they are unacceptable.

The prime minister said that North Macedonia, staying away from Serbia, which does not distance itself from its former leader, the cause of several wars in the Balkans, Slobodan Milosevic, nor from the autocrat Vladimir Putin, makes the region safer.

“The North Atlantic Alliance NATO, the European Union, the United States of America and the United Kingdom are valuable platforms that bring us protection and security, especially at this time when Russian imperialism brought war back to our European continent. North Macedonia, the closer it is to Kosovo, Albania and Bulgaria, and the further away it is from Serbia, which is not distancing itself from either Milosevic or Putin, the closer it will be, i.e., North Macedonia to membership in the European Union and our Balkan region will be safer. And for this we must help and will support North Macedonia”, said Kurti.

Focusing on the road project that connects Kosovo with North Macedonia, the Prizren-Tetova axis, Kurti said that this project is an agreement between the two governments, and the cost is not so high when considering the benefits.

Kurti drew attention to the fact that delays in the construction of this road are unacceptable.

During the official visit he made to the two municipalities of North Macedonia, the Municipality of Çair and the Municipality of Tetova, the Prime Minister of Kosovo Albin Kurti, accompanied by the mayor of Tetova, Bilall Kasami, participated in the welcoming event that was organized in his honor, in “Iliria” square.
