Albania-USA: 27 years since the reestablishment of diplomatic relations

Today marks the 27th anniversary of the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between Albania and USA.

It was 15 March 1991 when the two countries signed a memorandum of understanding. The memorandum was signed by the then Albanian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Muhamet Kapllani and the US Assistant Secretary of State, Raymond G.F Seitz.

“The relations between our two countries start in the early years of this century, when President Wilson extended the support of his country to the new Albanian state. This relation was never forgotten by thousands of American born Albanians, who preserved ties with their country all these years”, Seitz declared at that time. /balkaneu.com/
