Albania is applying to join the EU Civil Protection Mechanism

Albania has formally applied to join the EU Civil Protection Mechanism. Prime Minister Edi Rama in a press conference with EU Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenercic said that membership is a very significant step and a great relief for the country.

"Thanks to the help of the commissioner, we have received assistance from this mechanism in dealing with last year's heavy fires where heavy vehicles used by countries such as the Netherlands or the Czech Republic belonged to this mechanism. Europe has set up this mechanism to tackle together the impact of climate change and the consequences of climate change on our environment. Not only that, but to face serious crises together. This mechanism is at the forefront of the effort to guarantee overwhelming support for Ukraine. Albania's membership in this EU of civil protection that works with this mechanism is a significant step and a great relief for us given the needs we have. It is not just about receiving but also giving. I want to thank the commissioner.
