ANKARA (AA) – Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu will pay an official visit to Albania on Wednesday.

“Bilateral relations with brotherly Albania as well as cooperation opportunities will be discussed; experiences on the EU accession processes will be shared while views on regional and international issues will be exchanged during the visit,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

Ankara has been at the forefront in helping out Albanians in need.

The state-run Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) delivered 500 food packages and 500 blankets to victims of a deadly earthquake in northwestern Albania last November.

Also, Turkey has begun constructing 500 houses for the quake victims.
