President of Albania doesn’t grant the government omnipotence for negotiations with Greece

The President of Albania, Ilir Meta has announced his decision today to reject the request of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to be granted authorization to negotiate with the Greek authorities on the issue of sea borders.

The President of the Republic values the engagement of the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs to launch negotiations for a new agreement between the states which aims at delimiting the sea border with Greece.

According to Meta, every solution needs to comply with the principles of the Constitution of the Republic of Albania and to uphold the interests of the state.

The President of the Republic believes that the constitution of the negotiating group as far as the institutions which have been involved is not complete and that this may fail to deliver the standards which are required and the necessary guarantees for a moral and professional integrity in participating in these important negotiations for the Albanian state.

According to him, the shortcomings which have been identified in relation to the negotiating group and its composition is a must in assessing the demand to grant authorization for omnipotence. /balkaneu.com/
