"In her remarks at the signing ceremony, Ambassador Kim said that Albania is taking an important step forward, by using traveler data to screen those who seek to enter or exit Albania, including terrorists, serious criminals, and other malign actors, to keep them from traveling”. Albania is now in line with its international and European Union obligations, a stronger ally fighting a common threat. Albania also continues its close partnership with the United States to strengthen Albania’s borders and increase its commitment to collective security”, she stated".
