TIRANA – Turning geography into politics

During his visit to Tirana, European Parliament President David Sassoli strongly urged the opening of EU accession negotiations for both Albania and Northern Macedonia, as their membership would mean turning a geographical space into a political space”.

Sassoli reiterated once again that both the European Commission and the European Parliament confirmed both countries had fulfilled what was required of them.

The Parliament president said it was important for the Western Balkans region as well as for the European Union to continue the enlargement process because the region is surrounded by the EU. (Augustin Palokaj, Jutarnji list)
