Prime Minister Edi Rama said that the EC Report reaffirms once again the conviction that Albania has met all the conditions to formally start what was previously decided in the European Council and to undertake the membership discussion together with the EU.
"EC Report reaffirms once again that Albania has met all the conditions to formally start negotiations and undertake the membership discussion. I want to emphasize that we find in the EC a fair and impartial partner, a rigorous partner who evaluates progress based on field research and therefore I will repeat today that in no capital of the member states is there a similar structure or to be able to compete in terms of the quality of research and in terms of justice and judgment of the EC and EU delegation here in our country.
The progress report is the guiding document for us. The report objectively seals that Albania comes from an undisputed electoral process in terms of integrity and OSCE recommendations. Secondly, Albania has made progress in key state-building reforms. The vetting process is referred to as a success process", said Prime Minister Rama.
