Albania, European Union Candidate Country


On 24 June 2014, in line with its Conclusions of 17 December 2013, following the Commission’s report of 4 June and in light of the continued progress, the Council decided to grant Albania candidate status


Council decision was endorsed by the European Council in its meeting of 26 June 2014. This merit based decision is a testimony of the dynamism and credibility of the Enlargement process and its transformative power. It opens a period of higher responsibilities for Albania to address the recommendations in the Commission’s report and the implementation of the key priorities in view of opening the accession negotiations.
