International Military Cooperation – Albania – 2022


Albania is the least transparent country in the region when it comes to disclosing exercising activities with international partners. Albanian Armed Forces’ website cannot be accessed and the MoD’s website contains very scarce information on this topic. Hence, the data presented in the graph is an estimate based on information gathered through public sources and lists provided by other countries in the region.

Similarly to other NATO member countries in the region, it participates in big multinational exercises hosted by the U.S Army in Europe and Africa and NATO, but also in regional exercises organised under the auspices of the B-9 forum and the Adriatic Charter (A5).


The United States of America are the biggest foreign donor of the Albanian defence system, having donated 37 Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) vehicles, engineering equipment, demilitarisation funds, 29 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (Humvees), 6 military drones, CBRN equipment, 100 M-4 rifles as well as other equipment in the past three years. Turkey has donated MPT-55 rifles, 6 Ford ambulances and emergency situations equipment. Italy has donated two Lince armoured vehicles, whose value was not published.
