Al­ba­nia: NATO will mod­ern­ize air base

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Nation & World -

The prime min­is­ter of Al­ba­nia says the NATO has de­cided to build an air base in the coun­try.

Prime Min­is­ter Edi Rama on Satur­day wrote in his Facebook page that NATO’s North At­lantic Council, the main po­lit­i­cal de­ci­sion-mak­ing body, has de­cided to in­vest 50 mil­lion euros ($58 mil­lion) “to mod­ern­ize the air base in Ku­cove,” 50 miles south of the cap­i­tal Ti­rana. The air base has been there for decades.

The base will sup­port NATO air sup­ply op­er­a­tions, lo­gis­tics sup­port, air polic­ing, train­ing and ex­er­cises.

Al­ba­nia joined NATO in 2009.
