The European Commission reacted on Monday over the last proposal of the Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama for a joint president with Kosovo.
European Commission spokeswoman, Catherine Ray, stated that Rama's statement does not help good relations between the two countries and a good neighbor, and can be interpreted as an political interference.
"The EU has consistently supported the principles of reconciliation and co-operation in the Western Balkans. Declarations that can be interpreted as political interference in neighboring countries do not help build good neighborly relations," said Ray.
She added that the EU expects that countries throughout the region have to continue building cooperative and constructive relations to move forward on the road to European integration.
Albanian Prime Minister, Edi Rama, suggested on Sunday that Albania and Kosovo should have one President.
He made the proposal on the day Kosovo was celebrating 10th anniversary of independence.
