    The Dutch parliament votes against Albania’s accession to the EU!


    The Dutch parliament decided against the opening of the negotiation process of Albania’s accession to the EU, regardless to the EC appeal this last months. Firstly, the verdict was approved by the Council of the General Issues and the Council of the Foreign Affairs, then they asked the dutch lawmakers to vote against Albania’s accession to the EU, by doing so they have gone against the positive recommendation given by the European Commission. The main reason that was named in the verdicts, is that according to the Netherlands, our country hasn’t made any real steps regarding the fight of crime and corruption.

    The Netherlands is the only country that has asked the EC to reinstate the visas for Albania with the justification that its citizens are involved in criminal acts in their country./Tiranapost/D.D
