Russia's permanent representative to the EU, Vladimir Chizov, in an interview with the Athens-based paper Ekathimerini warned against what he said was Tirana's ambition to create a "greater Albania".

He said the possible land swap between Kosovo and Serbia could set a precedent for other countries in the region.

"I have seen some maps of the greater Albania, where a sizable chunk of Greece is included," he noted.

Chizov said Kosovo is a very complicated issue but "if they agree properly, the land-swap proposal might work out."
