NATO membership warms Albanian politics
TIRANA, Jan. 21 – The country’s possible invitation to join NATO during the April summit in Bucharest served to create a warm climate between the two rival political parties in the parliament Monday. The parliament’s 6th session of the 17th legislature started with a resolution introduced by the main opposition Socialist Party regarding Albania’s NATO membership efforts. The lawmakers offered unanimous approval of the resolution asking for necessary and needed steps to be realized ahead of the Bucharest summit in April. Albanians consider NATO membership to be an integral part of their “country’s democratic future,” according to the resolution.

The political parties present in the parliament agreed that NATO membership required more commitment and their continuous collaboration to build a functional democracy in the country.
