I’d like to thank you about your support to our efforts in Afghanistan and Syria and about your work in preserving stability in the Balkan. I would also like to reconfirm my gratitude for the collaboration of your government about the prisoners of GuantamoBay and residents of Hurriya Camp. These are important issues and we praise the strong support offered by Albania. As you turn into an important member of the opposition, I’m convinced that you will remain positively committed in the process of Albania’s integration in the EU. Albania needs an efficient and constructive opposition which will focus on the developments of the country and one which works with the new government to produce tangible results for the Albanian people. Allow me to send you my best wishes and lots of luck in your future efforts”, states amongst others the letter of the US President Obama, made public by Berisha on his Facebook profile. /ibna/
