US State Department recognizes Albania’s efforts in the fight against terrorism

“Albania was a strong supporter of the efforts against terrorism and continued to offer its contribution in the Global Alliance in the War against ISIS”. This is stated in the US State Department annual report on terrorism in the world during 2017. According to the report, Albania is constantly engaged in countering terrorist acts, financing of terrorism and transaction with persons who are on the UN sanction lists or the recruitment and training of people engaged in terrorist attacks.

“During 2017, police in Albania mounted their efforts to counter potential terrorist threats”, the report also says. Meanwhile, the report also states that “corruption and obstacles in exchanging information between government agencies, insufficient coordination between agencies and a weak judicial system continued to act as obstacles in the efforts for the application of the law in all levels”.
