Fule in Tirana: If the crisis continues, the integration of Albania in EU stopped
While the majority and opposition in Albania have not yet found the language of understanding, Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighborhood Policy, Stefan Fule, who two days earlier called on the Albanian political leaders to resolve the politic crises before his visit in Tirana, has held its first meeting in country with the head of State, Bamir Topi.
Before leaving the meeting in the capital Tirana, Commissioner Fule distributed through a media announcement, said that parliament is essential for a functional full functioning of democracy.
"If political crises continues, it can really hinder Albania in achieving political standards expected from a country that has applied for EU membership. The Parliament is the place for dialogue and to resolve disputes," the statement noted.
While underscores the need to settle the crisis in the best interest of the country, Fule states that "following the path should be guided by two fundamental democratic principles: respect for the Constitution and transparency"
