Albania–Croatia relations are foreign relations between Albania and Croatia. Both countries established diplomatic relations on August 25, 1992. Albania has an embassy in Zagreb. Croatia has an embassy in Tirana. Both countries are full members of the Union for the Mediterranean and NATO. Albania became one of the first countries to announce officially about recognition of sovereign Croatia on 21 January 1992.[1]


In April 2009, both countries became full members of NATO at an event which both Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha and Croatian Prime Minister Ivo Sanader attended.[2][3] Also that year, the two countries decided to build a joint Nuclear Power Plant on the Albanian border with Montenegro.[4] This decision was greeted warily by the government of Montenegro, which is worried about the plant's environmental impact. The two have a history of defense pacts, and overall theirs is a good relationship.[5]
