Ruçi also praised the “excellent political cooperation between the two countries, concertized on higher level visits as well as signing of 46 agreements between Albania and Croatia” and added that “economic cooperation should also approach the excellent level of political cooperation between the two countries. ” The Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Miro Kovač, underlined that Croatia has been and will be in support of Albania. “We are supporting your EU integration as we have strongly supported NATO membership. We are convinced that Albania has made tremendous progress, is moving on the right track and its place is in the European Union. Negotiations with Albania and North Macedonia will be opened very soon and we will support you throughout the process. We all agree that Albania is building a democratic and efficient society, “noted Kovač.
