The year ahead will be important for Kosovo and Albania
''Whatever the International Court of Justice will say, I trust the EU will continue to actively engage with Kosovo to ensure it stays connected to developments in the rest of the Western Balkans. Concerning Albania, I hope that the political picture as well as pragmatic progress on the ground will allow us to establish a clear path ahead in the Opinion the Commission will present in the autumn.'' stated Commissioner Füle on 7 July 20010 at the Plenary Session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
