ZAGREB, April 6, 2018 – Croatia supports Albania on its European path and we share the responsibility for stability in Southeast Europe, Croatian Defence Minister Damir Krstičević said in Albania on Thursday during a mission to maintain traditionally friendly relations between the two NATO members.

Krstičević met with President Ilir Meta in Tirana and expressed Croatia’s readiness to help Albania on its European path by sharing its experience, particularly in the area of the common security and defence policy.

“Croatia and Albania nurture friendly relations, joint interests and the responsibility for stability in Southeast Europe. Croatia is willing to share its experience and support Albania on its Euro-Atlantic path,” Krstičević said, according to a press release from the Defence Ministry.

Within the framework of the US-Adriatic Charter, the two countries are cooperating successfully in the Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan.

“Croatia will chair the Council of the European Union for the first time in the first half of 2020 and our priority will be to fight against hybrid and cybernetic threats, maintain strategic communication and strengthen the capacity and resilience of our partners, while geographically Southeast Europe is our priority,” Krstičević said.

Meta gave his full support for the continuation of bilateral cooperation between the two countries and thanked Croatia for its contribution to NATO’s KFOR operation in Kosovo. “Croatia is a traditional friend and partner to Albania and I believe the two countries will further deepen their cooperation,” Meta said.
