"I am pleased and proud to see three flags behind me. The commitment of the US government to ensure secure borders that are not only important for Albania. This commitment to the use of legality is and always will be. This commitment is unwavering. We are not only for the increase of Albania's capacities in this field, but we also cooperate with Greece. Protecting borders from smuggling is important for regional security and national sovereignty. Recent seizures at the border are a positive indicator. The border police must cooperate with other law enforcement agencies if they want to fight criminal elements.
