On Wednesday, February 27th, a 7-member delegation from the European Parliament is scheduled to visit Albania. The visit by European parliamentarians aims at improving relations between Albania and the respective European Union countries where the European Parliament plays an important role.

Albania expects a response in June from the European Council to open up negotiations, which, due to the political situation currently playing out in the country is difficult to achieve this year.

Even though members of the European Parliament have planned an earlier visit, they will soon find themselves face to face with a situation where the opposition has handed over their mandates and the Albanian Parliament remains with just over of half of its members in the midst of what has been described as an institutional crisis.

MEPs will have meetings with top state leaders, such as President Meta, Prime Minister Rama and the opposition leader, Lulzim Basha.

In the discussions, the topic of the current political situation in the country will inevitably be broached, however Knut Fleckenstein has warned that this time, Europeans will no longer be the mediator.

It is learned that the seven MEPs of the European Parliament will also pay a visit to Albania's neighboring country, North Macedonia.
