- With my special friend, the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, during today's lunch, during which we discussed in detail the Ohrid Agreement and further progress in the process of its implementation, Rama wrote on Facebook.I expressed all my sympathies to Albin for the courage and realism with which he took important steps towards the normalization of relations with Serbia. I encouraged the prime minister to take further steps, such as guaranteeing the Serbian municipalities within an association that guarantees the self-governance of the Serbian community, as well as the functioning with the necessary guarantees, of the Serbian Church in its religious buildings and its services in Kosovo, assuring him that in this not easy process has my full support, writes Rama. He adds that they have agreed that the next joint session of the governments of the two countries will be held in June. This will be the ninth joint session of the two governments, after the one in June last year. The first joint session was held on January 11, 2014 in Prizren and was led by the then presidents of the two governments, Hashim Thaci and Edi Rama, who described the event as "historic". For the first time, the parliaments of the two countries held a joint session on November 27 last year in Tirana, the day before the celebration of Albania's independence day, November 28.
