Albanian parliamentary speaker, Ilir Meta, has received in Tirana the leader of the Albanian Democratic Party in FYROM, Menduh Thaci. The meeting discussed the political developments in Skopje, Tirana, Pristina and the Balkan region.

After the meeting, Mr. Meta praised Mr. Thaci’s engagement and that of his party, but also the engagement of the entire Albanian factor to contribute for the integrating processes and the solution of the name dispute in the neighboring country.

Mr. Meta said that it’s necessary to move forward faster not only toward the full implementation of the Ohrid Agreement, but at the same time, to the improvement of the economic and social life of Albanians.

“It’s important to move forward not only toward the full implementation of the Ohrid Agreement, but also toward the improvement of the economic and social life of Albanians, in particular and in general the citizens of west Macedonia”, said Mr. Meta.

Meanwhile, the leader of the Albanian opposition in FYROM, Menduh Thaci, said that he sought information on world developments. “For us, Albanians of Macedonia, it’s very important to be well informed on regional and international situations, in order not to make any mistakes as a result of the lack of information”, said Mr. Thaci.

Leader of PDSH said that the primary concern of this party is the gridlock in the integration process toward the European Union and NATO. “This worries us. On the other hand, this complicates even the issue of our rights, be them political or economic”, said PDSH leader. /ibna/
