Turkey Pledges to Train Albanian Army Youth

The above issues were part of agenda of the talks Peleshi had with his counterpart Hulusi Akar. The two Ministers touched on the issue of implementing the two military finance agreements, a grant from the Turkish side that will be used to increase the combat capability and logistics of the Albanian Armed Forces, said ibna portal.
Peleshi underlined that Kosovo is very important to Albania, reaffirming the Albanian government’s adamant position that the only solution to a lasting peace in the region is the recognition of Kosovo’s independence from Belgrade.
