Opening of negotiations / Chief Negotiator Mazi: We will have good news in June!

The Chief Negotiator of Albania in Brussels, Zef Mazi talked yesterday about Albania's membership in the EU. Mazi said that we will have good news in June, but I can not give a percentage of chances for our country.

He also said that Albania has met 15 conditions, where 4 conditions had to be met before the first conference.

"The year 2020 was very difficult for the European Union as well, where it had to close 3 major things, among which was the expansion with Albania and North Macedonia. On March 25 last year, the EC decided to open negotiations. The date for the first intergovernmental conference is now expected. Meanwhile, from years until today, some countries have asked Albania to meet some requirements.

There were 15 requests, of which 4 were conditions before the first conference, and these 4 and the other 11 were all met. Following the previous report, it was requested to make the next report where for me it is the best and most positive report for Albania. So opening negotiations is possible, but I can not say a percentage of the chances. We will have good news in June. ”- said Chief Negotiator Mazi for RTSH ”.
