Donald Tusk, the outgoing President of the European Council, supported Albania’s EU accession negotiations.
However, the last say on this matter is up to the Council of Ministers, on October 18th.
The stance of President Tusk adds to the positive climate that has been expressed by other members as well, who would want to see Albania pass this test, even under new conditions.
“The biggest medal for me would be opening the EU accession negotiations for Albania. Thanks to your efforts we are closer to this objective. No one should have the smallest doubt”, Tusk said.
Tusk underlined that Albania doesn’t deserve to be treated differently than the other countries of the region, and that it should receive Europe’s respect.
