Decision to start EU accession negotiations a big victory, according to Deputy PM


Deputy Prime Minister for European Affairs Bujar Osmani said Thursday the country has scored a big victory by getting a decision for the start of EU accession negotiations, something the country could not do for 15 years.

“Over the past 15 years we have had a problem of getting a decision for the start of EU accession negotiations. The decision is the political will of 27 member-states to give us the opportunity to enter the final stage of the EU path that ends with full-fledged membership. We achieved a big victory yesterday by getting a decision we could not secure for 15 years,” Deputy PM Osmani told a press conference.

The start of negotiations incorporates three stages: a decision, drafting a negotiating framework, and an intergovernmental conference as the formal start.
