A number of candidates for active soldiers/seamen, part of the Albanian Armed Forces (AAF) headed on Monday to the Troops School in Bunavi for individual training. The Minister of Defense, Mimi Kodheli saluted the departing candidates while inviting them to be maximally committed and obey to the regulation.
"This is a special day for you. A journey, which that in my judgment will lead you far away, starts today. This path will take you far away if you will honor the uniform you will wear after the last test," said Kodheli, addressing to the young candidates.
She also expressed her firm conviction that the government will continue to support the AAF in the fulfillment of their commitments.
"I am sure the government will support the AAF starting with the budget's increase, a request related to the situations we experience but also a necessity of an era where technology moves rapidly and so does the level of danger for the country and citizens," declared the minister.
