The Ambassador of the European Union Delegation in Tirana, Luigi Soreca, encouraged the political class to cooperate in support of the Albanians' aspiration for EU membership.
"The new political season marks the return to parliamentary life of the opposition and I think this is a good omen for Albanian democracy. "Parliament will consist mainly of two blocs, which will have to work together on key decisions for the country's future, especially regarding EU integration," he said.
Soreca said that "he expects that the new Parliament, as a whole, will continue to push forward the implementation of all necessary reforms for Albania's integration into the EU".
The Ambassador expressed confidence that “the new teams, the Parliament as a whole and the non-political actors, are all ready to move forward, aware that only by doing so can they achieve the national and cross-party priority of Albania's EU integration, starting with the first Intergovernmental Conference (IGC) between the EU and Albania, which will officially mark the opening of accession talks ”.
