Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A few days af­ter eth­nic Greeks in the vil­lage of Dhermi (or Dry­mades in Greek) on the south­west coast of Al­ba­nia pre­vented author­i­ties from de­mol­ish­ing an Ortho­dox church, com­ments by Al­ba­nian Prime Min­is­ter Edi Rama on so­cial media yesterday added to the con­tro­versy.

Asked by an Al­ba­nian citizen if a Greek For­eign Min­istry state­ment call­ing on Ti­rana to re­spect re­li­gious free­dom­scon­sti­tuted med­dling in do­mes­tic af­fairs, Rama tweeted: “They did it more of­ten in the past and they do it less of­ten now. A lit­tle bit more time seems to be re­quired in or­der for them to re­al­ize that Al­ba­nia no longer ac­cepts tute­lage.”
