The PM of Albania, Edi Rama has sent a letter to Albin Kurti congratulating him on his new role as the head of the Kosovar state.

In his congratulating letter, Rama expresses his hope for the broadening of the relations between both countries, by emphasizing that “all the possibilities and potentials are there, for important undertakings and courageous projects in many different sectors”.

“I also remain hopeful that you and your governing team will be able to overcome all the challenges Kosovo is faced with during its comprehensive, democratic and integrating development process towards its Euro-Atlantic journey, “wrote Rama.

The Albanian PM also invited Kurti for an official visit in Tirana, while adding that his doors here are open, whenever he finds fit.

The Prime ministers and Presidents of Kosovo have turned it into a tradition now, to make Albania, the first country they officially visit.  

This isn’t the first time Kurti steps into office, as PM of Kosovo and during his first visit to Tirana back in February 2020, there was a clear clash of opinions between him and Rama.

The matter that came between Rama and Kurti was the Balkans mini-Schengen, which Kosovo has until now, refused to be involved in.   

Kurti’s most recent visit to Albania, before stepping into office as PM, was with the leader of DP, Lulzim Basha.
