The country has done much but region’s leaders must also act, says prime minister

I am well aware that some people, if you mention Albania, think of crime and drugs.

“Albania Lion 2011” η αλβανο-αγγλική στρατιωτική άσκηση

Φώτο από την άσκηση "Albanian Lion 2011'

Ιούνιος 1, 2011.

Μία από τις μεγαλύτερες, ιστορικά, στρατιωτικές ασκήσεις,  αναπτύχθηκε στη ναυτική βάση ‘Πασαλιμάνι’ της Αυλώνας από τις ένοπλες δυνάμεις της Αλβανίας και του Ηνωμένου Βασιλείου με τον τίτλο «Albania Lion 2011».

Η άσκηση 'αλβανικό λιοντάρι' ξεκίνησε  στις 27 Μαΐου και θα ολοκληρωθεί στις 3 Ιουνίου 2011. Είναι πρώτη σημαντική άσκηση που λαμβάνει χώρα στον τομέα της άμυνας μεταξύ των δύο συμμαχικών χωρών από τον Απρίλιο του 2009, που η Αλβανία έγινε μέλος της Συμμαχίας του ΝΑΤΟ.

Ανέστειλε την έκδοσή της η εφημερίδα ‘Αλβανία’

Φεβρουάριος 3, 2011.

Μια από τις πρώτες ενημερωτικές εκδοτικές προσπάθειες ιδιωτών, στην Αλβανία έφθασε στο τέλος της.
 Η εφημερίδα ‘albania’ που πρωτοκυκλοφόρησε πριν από μια δεκαπενταετία ανέστειλε χθες την έκδοσή της.
Όπως σημειώνεται, η χαριστική βολή για το κλείσιμο της εφημερίδας ήταν η αδυναμία καταβολής των φόρων προς το κράτος.
Η συντακτική επιτροπή ευχαρίστησε τους αναγνώστες για τα 15 χρόνια εμπιστοσύνης και τους ζήτησε συγνώμη για τις ‘ανησυχίες που προκάλεσε κατά καιρούς’.
