On June 18, 2021 the Executive Director of EMA, Gledis Gjipali was invited to Fax News to talk about the latest developments regarding Albania’s EU integration. He said that our country and Northern Macedonia are together in this process and can block each other as in this case. Bulgarian veto is unlikely to be withdrawn as early parliamentary elections are taking place. Gjipali added that Northern Macedonia has sacrificed a lot for the sake of the EU integration. He also commented on France’s skeptical position on enlargement and the new methodology. Moreover, Gjipali explained that the First Intergovernmental Conference approves the negotiating framework and the upcoming steps for the integration of the country.
