"As far as Albania is concerned, I say this: Greece will certainly agree with the start of EU-Albania negotiations, but on the condition of seeing actions that eliminate the discrimination being done against the Greek national minority in the country" - said the Premier of Greece.
Mitsotakis said he had discussed the issue during his recent visits with French President Macron, the Dutch Prime Minister Route and German Chancellor Merkel.
"I am completely clear on this issue, I pointed this out to my foreign colleagues in anticipation of talks at the European Council scheduled for October. We're not there yet. We will have to see a change in the attitude of the Albanian government towards the Greek national minority "said Mitsokatis.
The Greek Prime Minister's statement arrives a few weeks after the warnings of Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias during the presentation of the program of the new Greek government, while government sources say they look carefully at political developments in Albania last month.
