The EU Ambassador in Tirana, Romana Vlahutin made clear some of the conditions on which the membership of the Albania depends after the presentation of the Strategy of the European Commission in Strasbourg for the integration process of the Western Balkans countries.
According to Vlahutin, judicial reform implementation is the key of this process.
"The fate of Albania depends on fulfilling the next steps of judicial reform. Soon the EU will also release a report on the progress of reform in justice by providing further recommendations. It all depends on the Albanian institutions and their will to push the reform forward. Do not expect any gifts from the EU because it should be the Albanian state that must fulfill the mission and the citizens who should evaluate it, as they are the right judges of the reform and its effects”- said Vlahutin
