Edi Rama and Albin Kurti commented on Euronews Albania’s recent poll, asking Albanian citizens how they would vote in case of a possible referendum for the unification of both countries.
4 in 5 Albanian citizens in Albanian (79.2%) would vote in favor of the unification of Kosovo and Albania into one single state. This was based on findings by Euronews Albania’s Barometer, which also concluded that around 16% of citizens were against the unification of both countries.
The majority of Albanians (over 90%) believe that Albania and Kosovo are a single nation.
“If they ask me about the hypothesis of a possible peaceful referendum on the unification of Albania and Kosovo, I would break the law on the secrecy of the vote – and say that I would vote in favor of it. Now, if you’re asking me on whether this will actually happen or not, since you’re provoking me, I will provoke you right back. This will happen, one day. I believe it will,” – said Rama.
“In my opinion, when it comes to the issue of Albania’s unification, there’s more of a lack of understanding than a misunderstanding. This isn’t something we choose or pick. It is a collective intention that chooses us or picks us. This is why we can’t be the ones to decide on such historical processes or settle on dates and methods,” – said Kurti.
