The Netherlands welcomes the undertaken steps made by Albania

The European Commission will recommend the opening of the accession negotiations with Albania and North Macedonia on 15 October 2019. The council of ministers will discuss in Luxembourg regarding the enlargement policies and will unanimously decide on opening the negotiations with these two countries.

The Netherlands  reiterated that the assessment for the two countries should be done based on merit, firstly noting North Macedonia for the Prespa Agreement and the results for the Special Prosecution.

As for Albania, it welcomes the great work and the undertaken steps during the last year, but stressed that more work ought to be done in the fight against corruption and organized crime.
