Albania PM says Ukraine should have 'no illusions' about EU candidacy

Description

Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama on Thursday hailed Ukraine potentially joining his country as a candidate for European Union membership, but warned against any unreasonable hopes for a speedy process. "North Macedonia is a candidate for 17 years if I have not lost count, Albania since eight, so welcome to Ukraine," Rama said as he arrived for an EU summit with western Balkan countries.
