In an extensive interview with the English-language Albanian Daily News, asked about the process for delimiting the Greek-Albanian sea border in The Hague, Yorgos Christidis noted that Tirana should not underestimate the negative effect that any delay or backsliding with regard to the implementation of the agreement would have on Greek public opinion, and by extension on bilateral relations. “It’s time we resolved this difference and allowed our bilateral relations to move forward”, he said.

Commenting on the first meeting of the European Political Community, Christidis noted that its formation “underlines the new geopolitical urgency brought about by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and the need for closer political dialogue and cooperation between the EU and a series of non-EU member states; the participation of the nations of the Western Balkans in the format was obviously a welcome development”.
