Albania and the European Union


A quote from a Deutsche Welle article I added to my beloved Instapaper queue ages, ago but only just got around to reading. Use the original and best, people!

“The common goal of all the states in the region is, one day, to be part of the European Union, where we have freedom of movement for everybody,” [German Foreign Minister] Westerwelle said. “That is why a redrawing of national boundaries is out of the question, including the Balkans. In Europe, borders are losing their significance.”

If they’re losing their significance, what’s the harm in redrawing them then?
