Minister Gjosha meets the EU Commissionaire for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Mr. Johannes Hahn

During her visit to Brussels, Minister of European Integration Ms. Klajda Gjosha held a meeting with Mr. Johannes Hahn, the EU Commissionaire for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations.

Minister Gjosha said that Albania deserves a positive report on fulfilment of 5 key priorities by the European Commission in the autumn Progress Report. According to Minister Gjosha, the clearest indicator of the country’s commitment to advance the integration process is the Judicial Reform as main foundation for consolidation of rule of law.

“Consensual adoption of this reform was a great achievement for Albanians and all political parties. Reaching consensus witnessed the will that serves to development of Albania and we are determined to stimulate political dialogue afterwards”, minister Gjosha said.

Minister Gjosha stressed out that, through this reform, the country has fulfilled the major condition on opening the accession negotiations.

“These are concrete steps taken by Albania and we are convinced that the recommendation on accession negotiations and a positive report by the European Commission will serve not only to further implementation of Judicial Reform but also as best impetus for implementation of other reforms we aim to undertake in order to strengthen the rule of law and help the economic development of the country”, Minister Gjosha said.

Commissionaire Hahn expressed his appreciation for the Judicial Reform, encouraging Albania to move forward with the integration process. Commissionaire Hahn said that Albania will advance its European agenda through reforms’ results as the only way for progress.
