Albania Cooperates with European Union to Assist with Immigration Operations

This week Albania and the European Union (EU) police reached a draft agreement, allowing EU police to enter Albania to regulate and enforce immigration matters. The agreement signifies an ongoing alliance between both governments to expeditiously handle historically high migration rates by Albanians seeking asylum. This arrangement must still be approved by EU member states before ratifying, but European Commissioner for Migration and Home Affairs and Citizenship Dimitris Avramopoulos is hopeful that this agreement will inspire negotiations between other neighboring countries in the Western Balkans where migrant traffic is at its highest.
