Nikos Kotzias: The law of war with Albania is a foolness, should be abolished

 The Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias has expressed the readiness of Athens to abolish the Greek law of war with Albania.

 "The biggest problem the Albanians feel is that the state of war is not officially abolished, Greece will certainly answer, and there can be no formal obstacle or formal suspicion that the two countries are in a state of war. These are historical foolishness and we have to put an end to it," said Kotzias in an interview for the Greek newspaper "Real News".

 Kotzias welcomed the recent decisions of Tirana for the cemeteries of Greek soldiers and for granting citizenship to Archbishop Anastasios Janullatos.

Kotzias warned the critics within Greece that "there is no doubt about the improvement of the Greek-Albanian relations and their usefulness.

He is also asked about the possibility that if within the coming year the issue of the agreement on the maritime border will be solved. But the Greek foreign minister has sufficed to respond: "We will see."

A few days ago at the last conference of 2017, Prime Minister Edi Rama declared: "There are no secrets, no conspiracy nor things to hide, but real negotiations with expert groups, intensive negotiations. The next round will be held in January in Albania, is being negotiated to close chapters that can not be imagined that they could ever be closed since the law of war. Regarding the government's decision to build Greek cemeteries, Rama said that in this regard there is nothing new, simply the unlocking of a process agreed by the previous government "

The negotiations between Greek Foreign Minister and Albanian Foreign Minister Ditmir Bushati are expected to continue in January.
