The US Charge d’ Affairs Leyla Moses-ones, attended the Conference ” The United States of America in the Western Balkans on Monday, where she stated that Albania has refused Russian and Chinese influence, and that the only path for Albania is the EU. In her speech, Moses-Ones stressed that Albania is intensively working on justice and electoral reform, which has now turned into a national project.
“Albania is an EU candidate country, this has not changed, the work that needs to be done has not changed. Albania will gain its place in the EU by redoubling efforts to fight corruption and crime. Not only is Albania working hard on justice reform, but electoral reform has become a national project. Albania’s leaders have chosen to compromise for the sake of the common good. Albania has fulfilled and respected the commitments put forth in the Wales Summit, and Albanians have sacrificed their lives for the common defense. For Russia, China, the Balkans are a tool to exploit and throw away, they want to undermine the Western model. The Kremlin insists on exporting nothing but chaos; Iran has used its presence in Tirana to crush opponents. Albania has made it clear to China that some things are not for sale and has rejected Russian machinations. The US welcomes Albania’s priorities, ” said Leyla Moses-Ones./ Tiranapost.al.
