The EU rapporteur on Albania, Knut Fleckenstein, calls on the European Union to encourage expansion through a strategy, in which Western Balkans must become part of.
The German MEP sees Albania as the example of an associate member country, to which the EU has offered considerable support for the delivery of a full judicial reform.
In an analysis published today, Knut Fleckenstein stresses the fact that Albania has started to deliver the judicial reform before the start of the EU accession talks.
Therefore, he demands Brussels to give the green light for the launch of talks with Albania as an important part of the integration process.
Mr. Fleckenstein’s appeal comes a day before the finalization of possible amendments of the annual report of the European Parliament on Albania. /balkaneu.com/
