One could not imagine, if we consider it from one viewpoint, the Agreement of March 9, 1997, one could not imagine that a government of national reconciliation be created, but, in fact the reality led to these and this reality should be seen directly in the eye, the Albanian policy must be unblocked at any cost to open the way to new visions, to a total emancipation of the Albanian policy, to new ideas so that it also reflect the good undestanding we see everywhere, in the international factor, by the United States of America, by the European Union, the European Parliament, the Council of Europe, by all the states which are really concerned about the situation in Albania," said Mr Pellumbi.
Asked how his proposal would be understood in the SP, Pellumbi said that he wished it be well-understood. "I too have spoken before not to join the Parliament and in those conditions it was really logical what we said. But it is equally logical what I am saying today, because conditions have changed, circumstances have changed, the people expect from the political forces, it expect from the politicians new ideas, new solutions, an end to the blockage of the Albanian policy. It seems to me that this would be a moment to unblock the Albanian policy, a moment which would show SP as an emancipating political force which knows to make compromises, which knows to make reconciliation even with those it has named the main opponents and opponents of the policy," said Pellumbi. kled/pas/xh/+++
