Foreign ministry spokesman Grigoris Delavekouras on Thursday termed as "very strong" the message conveyed to both the Albanian political leadership and Albanian public opinion, last Monday's joint visit to Tirana by the Foreign Ministers of Greece and Italy Stavros Lambrinidis and Franco Frattini.
The visit followed an intitiative by Athens.
Delavekouras said the message sent was positive and the two ministers stated with their presence both the support of their countries and of the European Union for Albania's European prospect, while in parallel they underlined the need for cooperation between the political forces of the neighbouring countrhy for a resumption of their European process.
