Bushati- Çavuşoğlu pave the road to setting up the Albania-Turkey High-Level Cooperation Council

Ditmir Bushati, Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, received today in a meeting Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey, who is conducting an official visit to our country. In the framework of this visit, the two counterparts held a joint meeting where a number of issues were discussed, with a focus on bilateral political, economic and trade relations, further cooperation opportunities between Albania and Turkey, as well as regional and international issues.

The two ministers aligned the Document for the Establishment of the High Level Cooperation Council, to be chaired by the Prime Minister of the Republic of Albania and the President of the Republic of Turkey with the aim of deepening and enhancing cooperation in all areas of mutual interest at bilateral, regional and global level. This Council will determine the strategy for developing relations between Turkey and Albania in the areas of politics, security, defense, economy, trade, energy, transport, tourism, culture, science, art and education, as well as contacts between people.

Minister Bushati stated that in this meeting, together with my friend Çavuşoğlu, we agreed to strengthen the economic dimension, because, according to him, the good political relationship is not necessarily accompanied in every case by the economic dimension.”Albania and Turkey have already clearly confirmed the political will to strengthen bilateral relations, to raise them at the strategic partnership level, and to identify new areas of cooperation across the whole framework of mutual interest, particularly in the economic and trade relations” said Minister Bushati.Turkish Minister Çavuşoğlu stated that during the meeting bilateral relations were addressed in all dimensions. “Our economic relations are growing every day, the trade between us is increasing, and so are Turkish investments in Albania. Our cooperation is very close.”He expressed the confidence that with the signing of the “Declaration”, cooperation between our countries will reach higher levels.
