The protest concerns Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama's statement about a future unification of Albania and Kosovo.

Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said on Thursday the protest note stated that Edi Rama's stance was "unacceptable for Serbia."

Dacic described it as "yet another in a series of provocative statements made by top Albanian officials that is harmful to bilateral relations and endangers the overall relations and stability in the region."

It is about "a dangerous call to redraw borders of internationally, the recognized boundaries between the region's states," he said.

Rama's statement, Dacic continued, is contrary to the repeatedly stated choice of Serbia and Albania to develop good neighborly relations, cooperation, mutual understanding and a shared future in the EU.

"Serbia expects its partners in the international community to support the condemnation of the statement made by the president of the Albanian government, which causes harm to peace and stability in the region," Dacic said.

The ministry also sent a letter to the UN Security Council, asking that it be circulated as a UNSC document, and instructed all its missions and embassies abroad and in international organizations, he added.

Earlier this year Serbia also sent a demarche to Albania after a map showing "Greater Albania - and expansionist nationalist project - was displayed "on Edi Rama's residence."
