"Albania fully supports the decision proposed by the American friends and is ready to withdraw all its troops from Afghanistan, in accordance with the timeline set by NATO. In this world full of threats, we cannot face them alone and I believe that from this moment, the Alliance will emerge stronger and more united, with more goals, energy and ideas, to guarantee our collective security”, she said.
