Croatia PM travelling to Albania on Monday
Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic will officially visit Albania on Monday and Tuesday, meeting with senior officials.
On Monday, Milanovic will meet with PM Edi Rama, President Bujar Nishani, and opposition leader Lulzim Basha.
Albania and Croatia established diplomatic relations more than 20 years ago and joined NATO in 2009.
Albania hopes to win European Union candidate status in June and expects Croatia's support, Albanian diplomatic sources have told Hina, saying this relationship could be a model for bilateral relations and cooperation in the entire region.
Since diplomatic and political relations between the two countries are excellent, it has been announced that the talks during Milanovic's visit will address a joint approach to regional issues and initiatives, the strengthening of economic relations, and cooperation and improvement of joint actions in infrastructure and energy.
Last May, the two countries signed a memorandum of support and cooperation in the realisation of the Trans Adriatic Gas Pipeline and the Ionian Adriatic Gas Pipeline project.
