Albania Moves Ahead Toward Membership

The Council has decided to implement the procedure of Article 49 of the Treaty on the European Union on the application of Albania for membership. This is a procedural, but important step in the accession process.

Now the European Commission is invited to submit its opinion on the application. The assessment of the Commission will take approximately one year, and only after a unanimous decision of the Member states Albania will receive the status of candidate for membership.
