Rama at the Hague Court: The issue of maritime areas with Greece, to be resolved based on legal principles
Prime Minister Edi Rama paid a visit to the International Court of Justice today, where he was received by Vice President Kirill Gevorgian. Thanking the authorities of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for the reception, Prime Minister Rama also spoke about the open issue between Albania and Greece:
"Albania stands by the idea that presenting the issue of maritime areas with Greece before the International Court of Justice, to be resolved based on legal principles, serves the interest of both parties. But before taking this step, we need to reach the necessary agreement to take this case to the ICJ, and this agreement has not yet been reached. As you may know, this is not simply an agreement procedure between the lawyers and technical experts of each party. Our respective teams at the relevant ministries are working and we remain committed to moving in this direction."
At the end of the meeting, Prime Minister Rama also visited the premises of the Court and got acquainted with a brief history of the institution.
