9 May 2020 President Meta receives in a meeting the EU Ambassador to Tirana, H. E. Luigi Soreca
Pleased to meet with EU Ambassador to Tirana, Mr. Luigi Soreca on Europe Day!
70 years after the Schuman Declaration, the European Union remains the most inspiring project. Its strength stems from the fundamental values of freedom, democracy and solidarity.
Albania is today a candidate country to the European Union, enjoying the massive and unwavering support of its citizens for the integration process.
No time should be lost to swiftly implement all conditions related to commencing accession negotiations, with a focus to building a functioning democracy and rule of law, as underlined in the Zagreb declaration.
I am fully committed to take on my responsibilities in this process as the President of the Republic, and call upon all actors to carry out their respective obligations for a credible and sustainable progress in each of the 15 benchmarks.
For a European Albania!
