Contacts at the Foreign Ministry had these days the chairman of «Omonoias» and Mayor Himaras B. Bolanos, who "was found in the eye of the cyclone" in Albanian Opinion because of the defense the greek minority, which asked the Greek parliament to approve conditioned the Association Agreement between Albania and the EU, if there are no commitments to resolve the politic requests of the Greek minority.
Clearly and must be taken into consideration by the Greek Parliament the memorandum submitted by the «Omonia», but holds great debate what is happening in the internal affairs of minority and because «Omonia» continues through HRUP to participate in the Berisha government, which complains simultaneously in Athens that does not respect minority rights.
The secret probably lies in the forthcoming elections in Albania and balances that would keep the leadership of the minority, if it has a minimum satisfactory election results. Omonia called Tirana for the electoral law, which is disapproved by the the Greek minority as antidemocratic law against democracy and prosperity of Albania.
However Albania claimed as first diplomatic priority the joint NATO alliance leaving the efforts hopes by Greece for agreement with EU.
