Statement by High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini following her meeting with Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama

I was pleased to discuss today with the Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama, the political developments in the country and the reforms Albania is undertaking, particularly after it was granted the status of the candidate country for the European Union last year.


Albania has a clear European perspective and we discussed today the way forward in this process.


I welcome Prime Minister Rama's firm commitment to the European path of Albania, including the necessary reform work.


We also talked about the regional dimension and I expressed appreciation for Albania’s continued effort to be a constructive partner in the region and beyond.
