The 10th meeting of the EU-Albania Stabilisation and Association committee (SAPC) in Tirana, Albania was characterised as a successful one by all the participants. The EP delegation with MEPs from three political groups including, including Eduard Kukan, arrived to Tirana at a crucial moment for the country. The adoption of the judicial reform package by the Albanian Parliament is hopefully a question of days. This would constitute a major step towards the EU integration process of Albania.
„The importance of these refroms is clear to everyone. This is a huge package, a complex reform, an utmost challenging process which will help Albanians to strengthen the Rule of Law in the country and open the way towards EU accession process. I appeal to all poltiticians in Albania to bear in mind the responsibility they have. With the adoption of the EP Resolution on 14 April 2016, most of our work in the EP was done by ‚showing the path‘. To walk this path is up to the Albanian people,“ – underlined MEP Kukan during the debates.
Next meeting of the EU-Albania SAPC will take place in the autumn 2016, date to be announced.
