Gledis Gjipali/Executive Director of EMA gives his remarks on the EU-Western Balkan summit held in Tirana- 6.12.2022

Gledis Gjipali, the Executive Director of EMA commented the EU-Western Balkans summit held in Tirana on December 6, 2022. He stated that the selection of Albania as a host country is based on the progress during the negotiation process this year, as well as on the complete alignment of Albania’s foreign policy with that of the EU. Regarding the protest, Gjipali emphasized that demonstrations usually reflect the internal dynamics of a country, but the organization on the same day as the summit can have negative effects on the image of our country. Meanwhile, regarding the actions of the Serbian President Vučić, where he initially canceled the visit but then decided to participate, Gjipali sees it as a form of pressure as a criticism is expected to arise towards Serbia during the summit.
