One day after the President of Northern Macedonia, Penderovski, sent a letter to the European Council, asking them that the decision for Albania’s EU accession negotiations should be separate from that with Northern Macedonia, not both on the same time, received a comment from the Albanian Prime Minister today.
“President Pendarovski implicitly favours ‘decoupling from Albania’? Strange to hear this, especially when one considers the key contribution of Albania and Albanians in our friendly neighbour’s state democratic developments and European path. Doesn’t sound right nor practical frankly!”, Rama wrote.
According to Pendarovski, Albania is a troubled country right now, and Northern Macedonia’s EU path could be damaged if both countries are judged in group by the EU.
