Another Balkan war with no winners

The scandal over the Euro 2016 qualifying match between Serbia and Albania bears the typical signature of former conflicts in the region, Bosnian author Andrej Nikolaidis writes in the left-lliberal daily The Guardian: "The flag incident came at the worst possible moment. There had been a glimpse of hope for the normalisation of relations between Serbia and Albania. It was announced that on 22 October Edi Rama will visit Belgrade and meet Aleksandar Vučić, the Serbian prime minister. It was supposed to be the first visit of the Albanian prime minister to Belgrade in 70 years. ... This 'football war' ended like every other war in Balkans. It was a goalless draw. There is never a clear winner. There is always more than one historical truth about who started it. And at the end of every single war, it says: to be continued."
