An Albanian delegation, led by Interior Minister Sandër Lleshaj and officials from the Anti-Terror squad arrived in Libya on Monday to attend several meetings with top security officials.

Sources told Euronews Albania that the meetings are in the framework of repatriating Albanian nationals trapped at the Al-Hol camp in Syria which is controlled by Kurdish forces.

Several days ago there was a march in Tirana calling on the Albanian government for the safe return home of the Albanians trapped in the camps of Syria.

According to unofficial sources, there are approximately 80 Albanian citizens at these camps, among them 50 women and minors.

Albanian authorities previously said that this is a difficult operation, however vowed to continue their engagement for their safe repatriation.
