The involvement of MEFA Xhaçka has a valuable contribution for our nation, taking into consideration the primary role that will Albania has in the UN Security Council. Likewise, Albania’s geographical position in the Mediterranean sea and taking a leading role, especially for issues related to migration and the food crisis, is in the interest of our country.

These are all measures that will help address this escalating turmoil, and at the same time promote cooperation within our region. And I believe that we have a real opportunity to develop in the Mediterranean a model of how this crisis can be handled around the world”, said the particular Albanian chief diplomat.
The Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, Olta Xhaçka, at the invitation from the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Italy, Antonio Tajani, participated in the second Mediterranean dialogue on the food crisis in Italy.
