The leader of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha has given a message before the EPP summit, saying that Europe is the dream of every Albanian.

Meanwhile, for the holding of the Western Balkans Summit, the leader of the Democratic Party says that he wants to address the obstacles towards the EU.

Basha’s speech:

The citizens of the Western Balkans are all eyes and ears whenever there is a gathering of EU leaders, full of hope for every door that opens and every light that shines forward in relation to their European perspective.

Europe is our dream and destination.

I was 17 years old when together with young men and women we protested under the slogan “We want Albania like all of Europe”. This call of our hearts overthrew the communist regime.

Today, 31 years later, we continue to desire, seek and strive for Albania as the whole of Europe.

We look forward to this Western Balkans Summit addressing obstacles to our journey to Europe. We expect support for the rule of law, more assistance in the fight against corruption and organized crime, support for free and fair elections; we expect more democracy, more opportunities for our youth and our citizens. /
