Prime Minister Rama was among the persons who had taken legal action against the agreement signed with Greece by the Albanian side at the time, where he had stressed out that the Constitutional Court of Albania had adopted positions similar to the Turkish ones on the Aegean.
Also according to the media the meeting will focus on the region’s challenges for the development and strengthening of trade and investment, as well as European integration.
