The American ambassador commemorated the 246th Independence Day of the United States and the 100th anniversary of the establishment of relations with Albania.

In a ceremony last evening, American diplomat Yuri Kim invited Albanian politics. Left and right participated in the ceremony, as well as President Ilir Meta, who at one point appears clinking glasses with the ambassador.

As we reflect on the 100th anniversary of U.S.-Albanian relations and the 30th anniversary of the end of communism, let us remind each other of the solemn role and responsibility all of us here have to cherish, protect, defend, strengthen, share democracy – the democracy for which all our peoples – Americans and Albanians – have fought so hard. I hope that we’ll continue to encourage each other to seize history, to live our history, to shape our history in the active voice – in the United States and Albania. Gëzuar! Edhe një qind!” U.S. Ambassador Yuri Kim at the celebration of the 246th Independence Day of the United States and 100 years of U.S.-Albania relations, read the Ambassador’s full remarks.
