ALBANIAN WRITER SPEAKS TRUTH ABOUT MACEDONIA IN ATHENS
Albanian writer Ismail Kadare caused "a diplomatic incident" in Athens by using the name of Macedonia, which Greeks consider to be a part of their national heritage.
Athens's Mayor Nikitas Kaklamanis welcomed the Albanian writer at the beginning of a book promotion event, but as soon as Kadare used the word Macedonia referring to the Republic of Macedonia, Kaklamanis left.
Kadare visited Athens to promote his books "Agamemnon's Daughter" and "The Heir" translated in Greek language, Albanian daily "Shqip" reported.
The promotion of Albanian writer's books was sponsored by Bank of Piraeus, which conducts operations across Albania through the Bank of Tirana.
MD: Bravo to Mr.Kadare! The right thing to do.
