The Netherlands’ decision on the Albanian EU accession talks, will depend on France’s. While the Dutch Parliament issued neither “yes” nor “no” to the opening of Albania’s EU accession talks, it still likely to be influenced by the decision that France will make.
“Whether or not to block the opening of talks with Albania by the Kingdom of the Netherlands is a decision that will be made on the basis of France’s response, which is skeptical of Albania,” a source from Euronews Albania is quoted as saying.
During Tuesday’s session of the Dutch Parliament, a motion against the opening of negotiations with Albania was not submitted, and it was said that there would be no blocking veto from the Netherlands if other countries agreed.
