U.S. Embassy Statement

The United States Embassy welcomes the decision by the Ad Hoc Committee on Judicial Reform to accept in principle the final draft of the constitutional changes prepared according to the recommendations of the Venice Commission Final Opinion.

The unanimous support for this decision should give the Albanian people hope that their political leaders are now committed to the passage of this reform.  Unanimous support is unusual in Albania and we commend the Ad Hoc Committee for this important step forward in judicial reform.
