Serbian Justice Minister Nikola Selakovic has said that the country "cannot and will not" react quietly to the creation of a Greater Albania.

He remarked that "they need not hide it under any other guise, because (Greater Albania) is obviously what this is about," and "called on the EU to oppose it."

Selakovic spoke after Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama on Monday announced that several agreements signed between the governments of Kosovo and Albania represented "national unification" and that this had occurred "through the EU."

Kosovo is a Serbian province that unilaterally declared independence in 2008, an act Serbia considers a violation of its territorial integrity.

Selakovic said that while Serbia wishes to have the best possible relations with Albania, and for Serbs and Albanians in Kosovo to live in peace, "it will not react quietly to the forming of a Greater Albania."

"We are calling on the EU to oppose it, rather than keep quiet and look at it benevolently," the minister said late on Monday.
