Xhafer Ahmeti will leave Podgorica after the comments he made about former Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha.

According to the report, Ahmeti took to his Facebook account and posted that Berisha is a "psychopath," at the same time wondering how it was possible that "the people of Kosovo respected him so much."

The authorities in Priština said the decision to recall Ahmeti was made because his statements on the social network have not been "in line with diplomatic rules and behavior of a diplomat," and that "such stances do not represent the stances of Kosovo's institutions."

Hoxhaj was further quoted as saying that he personally "and the entire people of Kosovo" were grateful to Berisha for his "great contribution to Kosovo."
