Honourable members of the European Parliament and the Albanian Parliament, it is my pleasure and honour to address you on behalf of the Vice President of the European Commission and High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy Ms Federica Mogherini.
Today, Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship Dimitris Avramopoulos and Fatmir Xhafaj, Minister of Interior of the Republic of Albania, initialled the draft status agreement for operational cooperation between the European Border and Coast Guard Agency and Albania.

All six partner countries of the Western Balkans - Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Kosovo and Serbia - have a clear path to finally join the European Union, EU High Representative Mogherini said today announcing the new Strategy for 'A credible enlargement perspective for and enhanced EU engagement with the Western Balkans' adopted by the European Commission. Sustained efforts and reforms are still needed, but it is clear that integration is in the interest of the people of the EU and Western Balkans.
