MACEDONIA WANTS LANGUAGE SCHOOLS IN ALBANIA
Macedonian Ambassador to Albania, Blagorodna Mingova-Krepieva, asked for opening of Macedonian-language schools in Albania during the Thursday's meeting with Librazd's Mayor Kastriot Becaj.
Ambassador Krepieva said that opening of the schools is of interest of the both countries, our correspondent reported.
According to her, Macedonia stands ready to make an investment in road infrastructure. The meeting in Librazd included also talks on opening of a new border crossing in the area of Golo Brdo.
The Albanian press described the demand of the Macedonian Ambassador as "tendentious".
Considering the Albanian minority in Macedonia has Albanian speaking schools, there is nothing 'tendentious' that the Macedonians in Albania should have their own schools.
Shqip daily says that Skopje is copying Athens by its request to open new Macedonian-language schools, as the Greeks in southern Albania requested the same for Greek schools. In the commentary, the paper qualifies Macedonia's demand as "abrupt".
