Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama confirmed that part of the new Porto Romano port in Durres will be a NATO base, Tanjug reported, quoted by BTA.

Rama confirmed the information after returning from the NATO summit that took place in Madrid this week.

The port of Porto Romano is planned to be the largest commercial port on the Adriatic Sea, but Rama said it will also have a military component.

"We are returning to Brussels soon to continue talks on our proposal to establish a NATO naval base in the new port of Durres," Rama was quoted as saying by Albanian media.

He added that the military base will be built and co-financed by Albania and NATO.
