The Albanian Armed Forces (AAF) are seen as the last resort during civil emergencies. The Minister of Defense, Olta Xhaçka underlined this fact during an inspection on Monday in the Detachment of Regional Support in Burrel whose effectives copes with search and rescue operations in Lezha and Dibra districts.
"I declare with great loftiness that AAF does something that no one else is capable of doing. Our effectives are the one that respond immediately resolving any seemingly hopeless situation while others can't do anything due to the harsh weather conditions or broken terrains. The AAF constantly provides support to the rural areas inhabitants during similar situations filling the gaps generated by the local authorities' impossibility to do more," said Xhaçka.
She also stressed that Army's doctors and nurses will continue to assist the community in these areas moving from time to time from one district to another.
