Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras authorized the final negotiations on the outstanding issues between Albania and Greece. Sources close to the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed to the Top Channel television station the ok given by Tsipras for the start of the procedure of written documents between the two parties.
In Crete and Coriza (Korçë), as well as in the last meeting in Bulgaria, the foreign ministers of the two nations found the agreement also on those points that had remained outstanding. The maritime agreement, therefore, is to be considered concluded since the two parties have even found an agreement on the new division of the coastline.
Similarly, Albania and Greece have agreed on other issues: the elimination of the stamp on the official Albanian documents (for which implementation is expected from March-April and that will save thousands of euros for Albanian emigrants), the revocation of the law of war, the crisis management agreement between the two countries, on the subject of driving licenses, on that for the Greek fallen of the Second World War as well as on various collaborations in both territories.
Furthermore, the textbook correction agreement is being implemented to abolish the terms deemed offensive or irredentist for the two countries. Several government sources confirm that, at the high levels of politics, we will avoid geographical terms that define areas such as Northern Epirus (Vorio Epiro) for the Greeks or Chameria (Çamëria) for the Albanians (in reference to people born in the villages of the region of Tesprozia) who will abolish the term from the civil records
Tsipras has accepted - again reports Top Channel - the invitation of Prime Minister Edi Rama to spend with their families the Orthodox Easter the April 8 in Coriza, while the official visit of the Greek Prime Minister to Tirana remains to be established, which most likely it could be between the 10 and the 12 April.
