EU Donors Conference on Albania to take place 17 February

Following a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama visited Brussels, where he met with senior EU officials.

The main topic of the meeting, according to Rama, is preparation for the Donors’ Conference, which will be held on February 17 under the auspices of President Ursula von der Leyen, as well as Albania’s last remaining prerequisites, before the next Summit on the start of accession negotiations with the EU.

The damages caused by the catastrophic earthquake of November 26 is approximately 1 billion euros, though the amount has not yet been officially formalized. Rama has stated that Albania cannot deal with the effects of the earthquake on its own./ibna
