    (ANSAmed) - Bari - A strong European Union is needed to meet the current migration challenge, Albanian European Integration Minister Klajda Gjosha said on Monday.

    "I don't yet know what direction President Trump will take concerning immigration because right now there is a big discussion going on in the US," Gjosha said.

    "What I do know for sure is that a better and stronger Europe will be better able to tackle the issue despite the approach America is taking now," she added. Gjosha also appealed for more "solidarity" and "unity" in Europe in order to meet the present global challenges. "I think that the EU and its member states are taking for granted the real significance of the Union and the reason for its creation: peace, solidarity, unity," she said.

    "In this sense the countries in the Western Balkans can make a major contribution … beacuse we don't take anything for granted and truly see a united Europe as the only prospect we have for joining forces and building a better and safer Europe," Gjosha concluded. (ANSAmed).
