Acting PM, Hashim Thaci has sent his wishes to Albanians on the National Day.

“Today, our fellow Albanians wherever they live, celebrate a big historical event, the National Day, Albania’s Independence Day. This event has inspired and largely cultivated the feeling and idea of freedom for many years in a row even in those lands which were left out of Albania on November 28, 2012. Albania today celebrates the 102nd day of independence being in its best political, diplomatic position and with a clear European perspective. To all Albanian citizens wherever they live, I’d like to wish a happy National Day”, said Thaci.

For Kosovo, November 28 is also the birthday of the legendary commander Adem Jashari and the day when Kosovo Liberation Army was born.

This festive atmosphere is not only heard in Albanian lands, but also in many western cities where Albanians live, where they have displayed red and black symbols. /ibna/
