Albanian Party Leaders Did Not Come to Meeting Organised by Ahmeti

DUI leader Ali Ahmeti was the only leader of an Albanian political party in Macedonia to attend the meeting of leaders of these parties he himself initiated and scheduled for Thursday 13 August. None of the other leaders of Albanian parties, Bilall Kasami (BESA), Ziadin Sela (AA), Afrim Gashi (Alternative) and Menduh Thaci (DPA) turned up at the meeting, which as Ahmeti pointed out when scheduling it, was to observe the 19th anniversary of the signing of the Ohrid Framework Agreement (OFA). “I am deeply sorry that the party leaders, which previously demanded a meeting of this character, did not show up here today. I hope their absence today will not be used in political purposes,” Ahmeti said after the meeting.
