On Saturday, Albania’s defense minister announced that his country would be strengthened with the purchase of Javelin anti-tank missiles.
Javelin-type anti-tank missiles have recently demonstrated their operational value in Ukraine against tanks and armored vehicles.
According to Albanian Defense Minister Niko Pelesi, Albania has signed a contract with the American company Lockheed Martin, but did not provide details on the price of the missiles, the number of missiles or when they will finally be delivered.
“In order not to create panic, there is no specific threat.” We are a NATO member country, and the issue of national security has been resolved. “We are protected,” the Albanian minister told reporters.
Pelesi also said that NATO is not a threat to any country, including Russia.
Pelesi described Finland and Sweden as “two independent sovereign countries with high political, legal, and also military standards,” and Albania backs the “open door” policy of the alliance, which welcomes Finland and Sweden as new members.
