The Mayor of Athens, Costas Bakoyannis, praised the Albania-Greece relations, emphasizing that the two countries have the opportunity to increase cooperation between them.
Bakoyannis said that Albania and Greece should not be caught up in the past, but look towards a common European future. He stressed that in this part Greece supports Albania's path towards the EU.
"I was here about 10 years ago. Today [Tirana] is a different city. I was impressed by the dynamism and vibrant character of the city. Every year something changes and to be honest I am very surprised by the good work of my friend, the mayor [Erion Veliaj]. I think it is a city in transformation and being reborn. "There is a lot of optimism and it is a justified optimism for Tirana," Bakoyannis told Euro News Albania, adding that Veliaj is expected to visit Athens in the autumn.
