The Prime Minister of Northern Macedonia, Zoran Zaev, has said that a union between Kosovo and Albania would not be a good idea.
Speaking to “N1”, Zaev said that a national union of Albanians is not the future that the people in the region want because their future is in the European Union.
“A Europe without borders in which people cooperate and communicate and I am convinced that these ideas are from individuals who are a minority and have no future,” he said.

Albanians and Serbs.
At this point he added that he expects the leader of the Vetëvendosje Movement, Albin Kurti, to join the leaders in the talks “for the good of all”, after taking over the leadership of the state of Kosovo after the victory in the February 14 elections.
According to him, the “Mini-Schengen” initiative would bring benefits to all parties.
