On 24 February 2009, the Annual Albania/EU Troika meeting was held in Brussels, in the context of the Political Dialogue between Albania and the EU. Karel Schwarzenberg, Czech Minister for Foreign Affairs and President in office of the Council of the EC, welcomed Lulzim Xhelal Basha, Albanian Minister for Foreign Affairs, for the EU Troika meeting, on the margin of the GAERC of the previous day. Albania is in negotiations with EU for a possible adhesion since a first trade agreement in 1992. In 2006, Albania became associated EU member, after the signature of a Stabilisation and Association Agreement. Karel Schwarzenberg and Lulzim Xhelal Basha exchanged views on the situation in Albania, about political developments in the region and on the regional cooperation. They also have discussed internal developments in Albania, such as changes to the constitution, and the preparation for the upcoming parliamentary elections including the reform of the electoral code and the set-up of the civil registry. They have stressed the importance of a collaboration across the political spectrum as well as the necessity of building up administrative capacity.
