TIRANA, July 26 /ATA/ – Albania has fulfilled around 90% of a set of priorities set out by the European Union in view of opening the accession negotiations, European Integration Minister Klajda Gjosha told an interview with TV A1 Report.

Gjosha stated that Albania will complete a thorough judicial reform this autumn, thus fulfilling all requirements in order for the country to further advance on its EU-integration path. According to her, once these requirements are met, Albania will immediately seek opening of the EU accession negotiations.

“The requirements set out by the European Commission are crucial, especially regarding the justice reform, with opposition finally joining the ad-hoc parliamentary committee on this important reform. First phase of the reform has already completed and problems have been identified. Within the autumn we will have the full package of the justice reform, which is key to the opening of the accession negotiations. The fight against corruption also has progressed well. The European Commission’s report will be positive,” she said.
