Translated by: Kristi Gadeshi –
“Parliamentary elections should be in accordance with international standards and those of the EU. This will serve as a good test for the country’s further operation and further developments to the EU “. High Representative of the EU Chatherine Ashton in a press conference made this statement after meetings with top leaders of the country.
Ashton also added that political dialogue is necessary to enable Albania’s progress towards the European Union. According to her, progress towards the EU is in the hands of Albanians themselves.
“The key to progress is a constructive dialogue between all political forces and willingness to find compromises. We need to see a steady progress especially in the fight against corruption and organized crime. “- said Ashton.
Furthermore, Baroness Ashton sought to avoid nationalistic statements and added that Albania should continue its constructive role in the region.
“I believe that Albania has the capacity to address these challenges and move forward. My message is to support but also of a high expectation, “said Ashton.
In this visit, Ashton had meetings with President Nishani, Prime Minister Sali Berisha and the leader of the opposition Rama. Ashton’s visit in our country was within her tour in the Western Balkans.
