Johannes Hahn: EU Commission to recommend soon the opening of negotiations of Albania and Macedonia

 The European Union will soon recommend the opening of the negotiations with Albania and the Republic of Macedonia, according to Enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn.

"The EU Commission will soon recommend, most likely by Summer, that member states begin accession negotiations with Albania and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Albania, a candidate country for the EU since 2014 has done a lot in the fight against organized crime," Commissioner Hahn said in an interview to the German newspaper Die Welt.

"We believe the two countries have made important reforms in the past and are thus qualified for this step," the EU's senior official added.

The two countries will join Montenegro and Serbia, which started negotiations for EU entry in 2012 and 2014, and could become EU members by 2025.
