The Euro-Parliamentarian Eduard Kukan urges to Albanian political class to show a major unity in order to accelerate the opening of accession negotiations with European Union.
His appeal was addressed during the Stabilization and Association Council 12th meeting that was held on Tuesday in Tirana.
"In spite of the fact that political parties in Albania are inclined toward the opening of accession negotiations a majority unity should be shown as a clear indicator that you deserve it. Every chapter of the accession negotiations is very bureaucratic thus your team should be composed by highly qualified individuals capable of following the presented arguments," said Kukan.
He expressed the personal certitude that European Commission would recommend the opening of negotiations but added that final decision stands in the hands of Council of Europe.
