Albania tells NATO to take over naval base, calls it “an added price”

TIRANA, Albania – Albania has offered NATO the Pashaliman naval base, 110 miles south of the capital Tirana, as “an added value” to the alliance.

Albania became a NATO member in 2009, and has joined the United States and the European Union in denouncing Russia’s war in Ukraine.

Turkey had earlier restored much of Pashaliman, and used it as a naval base for some military ships patrolling the Ionian and Adriatic Seas.

NATO also has started work to upgrade Albania’s communist-era Kucove Air Base, 53 miles south of the capital Tirana, which will allow it to be used for NATO operations.
