The President of the Republic thanked Mr. Borrell for the support and attention he has always shown for the region of the Western Balkans and its integration processes and especially, for the opening of negotiations with Albania. President Begaj expressed his appreciation for the commitment of the High Representative and the Commission, to keep the integration of the region in focus, despite the debates and discussions within the EU. In this context, he emphasized that a clear European perspective of the region is a guarantee for its security and future.

In the meeting, the President of the Republic and the High Representative of the EU also discussed the situation in Kosovo, reiterating that the dialogue mediated by the EU and supported by the US is the only way to alleviate tensions in the north of Kosovo and normalize relations between Kosovo and Serbia.
