The Rapporteur of the European Parliament for Albania, Isabel Santos, greeted the decision of the EU member countries who are not against opening the EU accession negotiations with Albania, for the very first time.

“It is an important moment for Albania. The path towards EU accession should reflect the progress made by this country”, she wrote on Twitter.

Santos added that the EU Council of General Matters must plan the holding of the first intergovernmental conference.

“The strong support of the Albanian citizens to the EU deserves this progress”, the Rapporteur declared in her message.
