FROM A NEIGHBORHOOD FUND

EU allocates € 15 million to support Albania

The EU has pledged €15 million in relief funding following an earthquake that killed 51 people and injured thousands. The Albanian prime minister is optimistic about further aid packages from the US and other countries.

New European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced the decision and also said a new donors' conference would be arranged and 200 people would be sent to help with reconstruction.

"I have great respect for the Albanian people who've remained calm despite the circumstances. I want them to know that the EU is at their side with compassion and with action," she wrote on Twitter.

Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama left the NATO summit in London on Wednesday saying he had held "positive discussions" with US President Donald Trump, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and various European leaders about holding an international donors' conference.

The European Union is currently coordinating aid efforts in tandem with the United Nations.

Albania is not a member of the EU, but is hoping to start accession talks

Thousands of people were injured in last week's 6.4-magnitude earthquake, which was the worst Albania has experienced in decades. More than half of the country's population of 2.8 million were affected by the quake. Around 12,000 people have been left homeless.
