Source: Proto Thema, 29.11.2012 (Translated from the Greek original by B.S.)
“The declarations of every politician must be made in a spirit that reinforces relations of good neighbourship and not the opposite” declared on [Thursday] the representative pf the European Commission, having been asked to comment on the declarations of the Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha, which were aimed against Greece and fYROM.
Peter Stano, representative of the Commissioner charged with Enlargement issues and the European Political Neighnourship, Stefan Füle, stated: “As you know we do not comment on declarations of politicians and representatives of countries. I would, however, like to underline that it is very important for every country and for every politician that the make declarations that reinforce relations of good neighbourship and not the opposite””.
We remind that on Wednesday the Albanian Prime Minister claimed that Albanian territory extends “from Preveza to Persevo, from Skopje to Podgorodica”.The result of this provocative declaration was the angry reaction of mr Avramopoulos who announced the cancellation of his visit to Tirana.
Mr Avramopoulos was due to travel to Albania to be present for the festivities marking the centenary of the independence of the country.
