“Albanian soldiers and marines are true heroes”.
Such fact was declared today by the US ambassador to Tirana, Donald Lu, during the ceremony for the donation of 12 armored vehicles by the US government to the Albanian army.
Lu further confirmed that the Albanian Defence Minister, Olta Xhacka will hold a visit to the Pentagon next January. According to him, this is an extra opportunity to further strengthen relations between the two countries in the domain of defence.
“This visit will strengthen military relations and will increase our support for the Albanian Armed Forces. Minister Xhacka is investing in the future and we are supporting such investments”, he said.
Meanwhile, the US ambassador considered the donation of 12 armored vehicles as a small aid given by the US for Albanian Armed Forces, while stressing that this is the perfect time to be a soldier or marine in Albania. /balkaneu.com/
