Albania, Germany to cooperate in terrorism fight

TIRANA, April 23 (Xinhua) -- Albanian Prosecutor-General Adriatik Llalla and German federal prosecutor Harald Range Thursday stressed the great importance of cooperation in identifying the groups involved in the recruitment of "foreign fighters" for Middle Eastern armed conflicts.

Llalla, who is in Germany at the invitation of his counterpart, stressed the need for close partnership in the fight against terrorism and organized crime.

In addition, both interlocutors shared views on the need for swift communication between the two countries' prosecution offices to increase efficiency in investigations.

Apart from the existing cooperation between the two countries' judicial authorities, the two senior officials expressed willingness to sign an extradition pact between the two countries to send sentenced people from Albania to Germany and vice versa.

The Albanian chief prosecutor also requested Germany's technical and legal assistance to strengthen investigative capacity in Albania, as well as increasing the institution's independence.
