EU top official to visit Tirana in the hope of diffusing the situation

The recent political crisis in Albania with the opposition staging a number of anti-government rallies and opposition MPs who have decided to resign from Parliament, have obliged the Director General for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Christian Danielsson to visit Tirana on Thursday.

The top EU official is expected to meet with the heads of the two largest political parties, Edi Rama and Lulzim Basha in the hope of diffusing the tense political situation that the country has recently experienced.

At noon, Mr. Danielsson is expected to deliver a press conference./ibna/
