Minister Xhaçka said that all countries will cooperate closely, will share information and will be the initiators of all initiatives on this issue.

“We are aware of our capacities, but this is a matter of seriousness, preparation and ability to take responsibility. Our country takes a first-hand role in security issues through drafting together with the USA on the Ukraine issue. The first project will be drafted by our two countries and then shared with others. The co-authors are the first to speak on the issue at Security Council meetings. It is an expression of the deepening of the strategic partnership of the two countries “, said Minister Xhaçka.
