Nikolla praised the support that Greece has shown for the European journey of Albania.

“Greece is a precious neighbor, a historical and stable friend, an important partner of Albania on the path to democracy, progress and European integration. The cooperation between our two countries is strategic and we are determined for it to continue to be strengthened in the spirit of good neighborhoodness, for the benefit of our common interests, close partnership in NATO and a common European perspective. Albania is grateful to Greece for the great, clear and determined support of the European integration process, the opening of negotiations and we are convinced that we have this support for holding the first Intergovernmental Roundtable during the Slovenian Presidency, within December 2021. Countries connect the two strong bridges of friendship: the Greek minority in Albania, which enjoys all the rights enjoyed by Albanian citizens and the community of Albanian emigrants in Greece, which constitute the largest community of foreigners and for thirty years contribute for their families, for the economies and welfare systems of both countries “, said Nikolla.
