From Vienna, as if with a laugh, Edi Rama says a truth about the peoples of the Balkans
Prime Minister Rama delivered his speech during an official invitation to Austria. At the end of the speech, he made a description of the peoples of the Balkans with humorous notes. Who are the oldest people in the Balkans? Where does coffee come from, from Turkey and from Greece? Who first created the language spoken by the majority?
"They (it's for other BP peoples) have this problem. They speak the same language sometimes. One can start a debate about who is who. You have to quarrel with each other whether the language is of one or the other. This never stops. We in the Balkans always think we are the oldest. We Albanians think we are the oldest, those who came after monkeys in Darwin's evolution. Serbs do not let you pretend on this point. Let alone that the Greeks themselves think that monkeys came after the Greeks. We go to the Turks then who can open a big conflict over coffee, is it Turkish or Greek. A strong coffee that you better not try ", said Rama.
