Hungary fully supports Albania joining the European family, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán told media following talks on Tuesday with Albanian PM Edi Rama, Albania Daily News reported.

Rama, who is on a working visit to Hungary, met with Orbán to discuss political cooperation between the two countries. In particular, the talks focused on Albania’s path towards EU membership, Orbán told the media.

“The issue we discussed today is the political cooperation between the two countries. We are approaching the 100th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries and want to celebrate it beautifully,” said Hungary’s prime minister.

“Albania becoming part of the EU is not only promoted by our sympathy, but also our interest. Without establishing membership for this part of Europe, we have no stability,” said the PM.

“We are quite happy that we are able to find the main project and that the OTP bank [Hungary’s largest bank], was welcomed in Albania. We have a large investment in Albania”, he added. (Željko Trkanjec | EURACTIV.hr)
