The Albanian Armed Forces (AAF) effective' evaluation and promotion to higher ranks will be based on meritocracy. The Minister of Defense, Olta Xhaçka conveyed this clear message to the AAF troops during an inspection in the third infantry battalion in Poshnje, part of Berat district.

Meritocracy is the principal criterion that is considered even during the selection of those effectives that will be deployed abroad as part of international peace-keeping missions.
Each one of you is perfectly aware that this is a big responsibility that is placed on your shoulder. Your deployment in these missions serves not only to Albania but also aims to project a higher safety in these countries. That's why it is of maximal importance to base the selection process in meritocracy and full transparency," said Xhaçka.
The minister also thanked the infantry troops for the work done while copping with floods situation during these last months.
