Foreign Minister Ditmir Bushati will report to the foreign commission on the talks held with his Greek counterpart, Nikos Kotzias, during a two day visit to Crete. It was the former Minister of Integration, Klajda Gjosha, that asked for the commission to be informed about the talks after the discussions did not result in an agreement.
The demand was accepted by the ruling majority, with Socialist MP Kodheli saying, "We will call Bushati to the commission" Meanwhile, the Minister for the Diaspora, Pandeli Majko valued the meeting as a positive step towards improving relations between Albania and Greece.
"The meeting was a step forward in creating a friendly climate in relations between us and our neighbor" said Pandeli Majko.
During the two-day meeting in Crete, Bushati and Kotzias discussed current issues between the two countries in order to find common ground. The two ministers will meet again in Tirana in the coming months.
Among the topics discussed were the abolition on the law of war, the marine agreement and the issues regarding the Greek minority in Albania. By unanimous vote the commission has also approved the draft budget for the Ministry for Diaspora for 2018.
