Albania is at the “end of the beginning, not the beginning of the end” of its accession to the European Union, the bloc’s ambassador to Albania has said and reported by Euronews.

Speaking to Euronews, Luigi Soreca referenced Winston Churchill when asked about the stage Albania was at in its quest to join the EU.

Around 91% of the population of the Balkan state are in favour of joining, but recently the French and Dutch appeared to be blocking accession talks.
