German Ambassador to Albania Susanne Schütz attending the security conference in the Balkan region also conveyed a political message. Referring to the political situation where the opposition DP-SMI took to the streets in protests and declaring that they would not take part in the elections, Schütz said that political parties have the responsibility to work in the country’s interest and to remain loyal to their voters. “The threatening actors in this region are underlined on our agenda, experts and analysts will talk about this topic today.” Albania is a candidate for EU aspirant; the EC will present the report on Albania’s progress and publicize reforms. The German Parliament will make their decision on Albania for further steps. I am convinced that Albania has made important steps in this regard. Political parties have responsibility to work in the country’s interest and to remain loyal to their voters, “said Susanne Schütz.
