Krichbaum:  Albania is not yet ready to launch accession talks

Albania is not yet ready to launch accession talks with the European Union. This was declared today by the German MP, Gunther Krichbaum, while posting a photograph with the head of the Albanian government, Edi Rama.

“Yesterday, I invited the Albanian Prime Minister, Edi Rama to participate in the meeting of the German Bundestag’s European Committee Affairs. I took this opportunity to tell him that I believe that the opening of accession talks between Albania and the EU is premature. The progress of the reforms made so far are not enough”, wrote Krichbaum.

Let us recall that his stance against the opening of negotiations in June has recently become a topic of debates between representatives of the majority and opposition in Albania. /ibna/
