A European Union official has hailed Albania’s fast drafting of a contingency plan to address a possible influx of refugees, though there have been no indications they are turn toward such a route so far.

European commissioner for migration, home affairs and citizenship Dimitris Avramopoulos talked on Friday in Tirana with senior officials on migrants and security issues.

Avramopoulos said “so far there is no indication that Albania has been affected by sudden large inflows of migrants, but we have to be prepared for all eventualities.”

Albania is cooperating with Italy, which will offer equipment and personnel to register refugees and monitor air, land and sea borders.

Albania’s regional neighbors Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) and Serbia have closed their southern borders, which could prompt refugees to seek other routes into Western Europe.
