Albanian Parliament Speaker Ilir Meta told Kathimerini in an interview that “there is nothing the two countries can’t discuss” and called for a comprehensive solution to bilateral differences, including the Cham issue, which Greece doesn’t recognize.

Members of the Cham community who were expelled from Greece during WWII are demanding compensation for lost property, but Athens has dismissed the claim, saying they were Nazi collaborators.

Other issues dividing the two countries include Albania’s treatment of its ethnic Greek minority and an unresolved maritime dispute.

However, Meta denied that ethnic Greeks in Albania are being discriminated against but insisted that two countries must build on the strong historic ties of friendship.
