Albania’s prime minister has launched another scathing attack on the UK for accusing his country for fuelling the Channel migrant crisis.
Edi Rama said the UK was in ‘a bad place’ and having a ‘nervous breakdown’ over the flow of thousands of people from the continent in small boats.
He has previously attacked the language used by Suella Braverman in the Commons last year when she blasted ‘Albanian criminals’ sneaking into the UK.
Speaking at an economic event in Greece, Mr Rama said the UK was targeting his nation ‘to feel like they still have muscle’.
‘We have fought against [this language] and now we see they have calmed down a bit. But they are going through something of a nervous breakdown as a country so we have to understand them,’ he told the Delphi Economic Forum, according to the Independent.
‘It is not something we can’t understand, we have to understand them. They have lost a lot of points of reference and they are really in a bad, bad place.’
It came as a Border Force boat carrying 80 migrants picked up in the Channel arrived in Dover this morning.
