Xhaçka: US and Albanian peoples share strong ties

Albanian Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs Olta Xhaçka attended a conference on the “30th Anniversary of Albania-US Relations” organized by the Albanian Institute of International Studies.

Xhaçka stressed that relations between Albania and the United States are not just about diplomacy or just at the level of governments and states, but are a strong and multifaceted link between the two peoples.

As she said, the relationship with the USA was decisive for Albania’s history, starting from its role in avoiding the division of Albania a century ago until the fall of communism and the establishment of peace and stability in the region.

“Today, the United States is once again very committed to supporting Albania in all areas, from defense to the economy, where very serious US strategic investments are expected in the energy sector but especially in justice reform, where today Ambassador Kim persistently continues the mission of all her predecessors to support Albania in building here a European, democratic country, operating under the rule of law,” said Albanian Foreign Minister Olta Xhaçka. /ibna
