On the occasion of your 111th Independence Day, the United States sends its warmest congratulations to Albania’s government and citizens. This happy occasion honors Albania’s vibrant past and its people’s steadfast spirit.
The United States is proud to work with Albania as a partner and ally of NATO. Together, we are committed to supporting Albania’s efforts to reform the justice system, enhancing cybersecurity cooperation, and steadfastly supporting Ukraine in the face of Russian aggression. The United States strongly supports your full integration into the Euro-Atlantic community and appreciates Albania’s gracious hospitality in welcoming Afghans. The first two steps on this journey are the adoption of the European Union and advancements in the rule of law.
Albania recently received recognition for its outstanding service from 2015 to 2017 and was elected to the UN Human Rights Council, which is evidence of the country’s remarkable development over the past few decades. It is an honor for the United States to support Albania in advancing and defending human rights on a global scale.
Our countries ‘friendships, cultures, and shared values form the basis of our strong ties. May our ongoing cooperation benefit both of our endeavors and bring prosperity.
