PRISTINA, Kosovo – Less than a week before visiting Washington, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama has said U.S. Republican candidate Donald Trump would be a threat to his country and to U.S.-Albanian bilateral ties if elected president.

Speaking on a talk show late Thursday on Kosovo’s private television Klan Kosova, Rama said that Trump’s election would bring “major damage” to the U.S. and also be “a real threat to Albanian-American ties.”

“Donald Trump is a threat to America and, no doubt, a threat to Albanian-American ties,” he said.

Rama was in neighbouring Kosovo, two countries with the same ethnic Albanian majority population, to take part in a ceremony for new President Hashim Thaci Friday.

Rama said he was not referring to the Republicans but to a “character that has disturbed” some Republicans so much that they are now willing to vote for Hillary Clinton.

Rama, also leader of the main governing left-wing Socialist Party, will visit Washington next week where he is planning to meet with President Barack Obama and Vice-President Joe Biden.
