Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama has quickly responded to the statement of the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry in which he is called to keep to a language fitting to a politician from an EU candidate country, writes news agency MIA.
“Oh! Bulgaria’s Foreign Ministry has an issue with my way of speaking! Fair enough. I have an issue too with the way Bulgaria wants to solve bilateral issues by using the enlargement process as a vehicle of kidnapping two NATO countries! Easy friends: Lift the VETO or bear with me!” Rama posted on Twitter. In its sharp response to the Prime Minister’s statements, particularly the one that the veto is a disgrace, the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry said the statements were insulting, unprovoked and harsh.
“This is not the first time we heard harsh, unprovoked, insulting qualifications from a head of government. The harsh qualifications in such a low language register can no longer be justified by the nature and lack of European communication skills,” the Bulgarian MFA said among other.
It also added that Sofia expects the Albanian Prime Minister to keep to a language fitting to a politician from an EU candidate country.
