Ambassador Janina expressed gratitude for the support, assistance and solidarity shown by the EU in these difficult days for Albania and Albanians following the devastating earthquake.
Regarding Albania's European path, the Commission stressed that the “non-decision” by EU leaders was a strategic mistake and the European perspective for the region remains unchanged. The opening of accession negotiation and the discussions on the EU enlargement structure can go in parallel. The enlargement issue should be discussed immediately before the Zagreb Summit on May 2020.
The Delegation to the EU-Albania Stabilization and Association Parliamentary Committee (SAPC) welcomed the achievements of reforms undertaken by Albania in all areas, including justice reform, and stressed the importance of further consolidating these reforms.
