The President of the Republic, Ilir Meta held a meeting on Wednesday the delegation of the European Council on Foreign Relations, chaired by Carl Bildt, former Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Sweden.
During this meeting, the President stressed the importance of EU enlargement with the six countries of the Western Balkans, and noted the hope that Albania will join as soon as possible the membership negotiations. He also considered unacceptable, impossible and destructive idea the one for the division or exchange of territories.
"These are desperate attempts to overlap populist agendas on vital integration and stability agendas. The only work program at the table of political leaders should be to solve the problems and the real concerns of the citizens. Priority in each Country must be rule of law and democracy" said Meta.
He added that Kosovo should benefit from visa liberalization as soon as the demarcation agreement with Montenegro closes.
