Anne Mulder, Dutch Member of the Parliament and reporter on Western Balkans is paying an official visit to Tirana. He stated that integration of Albania into EU and the accomplishment of the reforms were the focus of the held talks. Mr. Mulder also spoke about visa restitution, adding that this issue will be discussed upon the upcoming visit of the Albanian Members of the Parliament in the Netherlands.
“The focus of the visit is the European integration process and the reform agenda. We are here to carry on the dialogue given the decision-making process for opening negotiations and our discussions in parliament have been very positive.
We have already been informed about the discussions and the impact that the Dutch parliament’s decision on the issue of visa liberalization has had in Albania. This issue will be discussed during the visit of Albanian MPs to the Dutch Parliament. We expect the European Commission’s assessment report on Albania, and then we will decide on the issue of opening accession negotiations, “he said.
