Kosovo and Albania signed a landmark agreement to coordinate their foreign policies and which will include joint embassies.

The agreement was signed after Kosovo Foreign Minister Behgjet Pacolli visited his counterpart Gent Vakaj in Albania.

Last month, Kosovo President Hashim Thaci started a new debate about Kosovo joining Albania, after his former call for “border corrections” between Kosovo Serbia got nowhere and on Monday, during the commemoration of a battle between Serbian forces and the Kosovo Liberation Army, KLA, in Pashtrik during the war of independence from Serbia, Thaci went further, asking the Kosovo and Albania parliaments to take action.

However, Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj, one of the strongest opponents of the border correction policy, has said he is not convinced about the prospect of instant unification with Albania.
