A crowd burned the Serbian flag in downtown Tirana on Monday to protest the visit to the Albanian capital by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.
Vucic is in Tirana for a summit with Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama and North Macedonia Prime Minister Zoran Zaev as part of their Open Balkan initiative.
The crowd of several hundred people gathered after Rama’s predecessor Sali Berisha called for the protest against the initiative and Vucic.
Rama moved the summit to the city of Elbasan where the three political leaders met for a working dinner on Monday night. The summit is scheduled to take place on Tuesday when Vucic, Rama and Zaev are planned to sign six agreements, including an agreement on conditions for free access to the labor market in the Western Balkans.
