Speaker of Albanian Parliament comments on the crisis of Syrian refugees

Tirana, 15 March 2016/Independent Balkan News Agency

The speaker of the Albanian Parliament Ilir Meta is demanding all the key players of world politics to focus on the solution of the crisis in Syria, as the only possibility for the solution of the refugee crisis.

Mr. Meta made these declarations from Gjirokaster, several kilometers from the new refugee gathering places in Northern Greece.

“The solution of the refugee crisis doesn’t only have to do with coping with the consequences of the crisis, but it also has to do with the fact that the EU, USA and other important players must focus in order to end the conflict in Syria and in other areas, which serve as the source of the crisis for refugees who want to escape war”, Mr. Meta said.

As far as Albania’s engagement is concerned, Mr. Meta said that: “As far as the coping with this crisis is concerned, as a democratic country, but also as part of the European Atlantic community, I’m convinced that Albania will offer its contribution within its capacities”.

The speaker of parliament didn’t respond to the question if the borders will open and if Albania is ready in the aspect of infrastructure to welcome Syrian refugees. /ibna/
