TIRANA – The second Adriatic Trilateral summit, an initiative launched by Albania, Croatia and Montenegro earlier this year, will be held in the coastal city of Durres, Albania, on Friday to discuss the challenges facing the Western Balkan region and collaboration on concrete projects on infrastructure, energy and tourism.
Croatia will be represented by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, Marija Pejčinović Burić, while Montenegro will be represented by the Foreign Minister of Montenegro Srđan Darmanović.
The Adriatic Trilateral is an initiative launched during a meeting of the foreign ministers of the three countries in the coastal Croatian city of Split in February.
The Adriatic Trilateral serves as a platform for joint efforts of NATO’s Adriatic space to strengthen and expand the cooperation between the three participating countries, as well as for a joint action in the interest of a safer and interconnected region in all dimensions.
The three countries have emphasized the importance of increased connectivity and cooperation in the field of economy, including in infrastructure, transport, energy, trans-border and trans-national environmental protection, as well as tourism sectors.
The meeting is scheduled to kick off on Friday morning at Durres Archaeological Museum. The participants are set to appear at a joint press conference following the meeting.
