By joining Montenegro’s ruling coalition, Albanians “saved” this country for the second time, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama has been quoted as saying.

“By joining the government Albanians saved Montenegro for the second time,” he said.

“The first time was their support in the independence referendum, and the second when they supported a coalition that is in favor of joining NATO and the EU,” Rama told TV Teuta, Podgorica-based daily Vijesti is reporting on Wednesday.
