Education Ministry mulls over introducing Albanian language classes

Loverdos said the issue would be discussed in the joint dialogue committee. Committee experts are expected to examine the Balkan country’s school textbooks on history, geography, culture and finance to establish whether they are in line with UNESCO and Council of Europe regulations.

“Any decision requires consensus,” Loverdos said.
