TAGS: Diplomacy, Politics

Giorgos Koumoutsakos, New Democracy’s shadow minister for foreign affairs and defense, on Wednesday called for a meeting of the National Council on Foreign Policy (NCFP) in a bid to hammer out a unified strategy on Greek-Albanian relations.

The call came hours after Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama raised the issue of claims made by the Cham community to the property they left behind after they were expelled from Greece during World War II.

During an interview with Skai TV broadcast late Tuesday, Rama said that the Cham claims were a “human rights issue,” adding that it must be included in negotiations that would tackle all outstanding bilateral issues dividing the two Balkan neighbors.
