    On Thursday, President Meta hosted the delegation of the New York-based American-Jewish Community led by David Harris, stating that the only solution to the political crisis is respecting the free vote. “The only remedy that cures the country from this deep crisis of representation and legitimacy is just respecting the free and direct vote of all Albanian citizens, and all of us accepting and recognizing the final verdict,” said Meta.

    The latter, also added that the friendship between the Albanians and the American-Jewish Community will continue to strengthen, and that economic cooperation should be further intensified. For his part, Mr. Harris emphasized that: “The traditional friendship between Albania and the Jewish nation is embedded in our national memory not only for the noble role of the Albanian people in the salvation, protection and sheltering of Jews during World War II, but also for our similar histories as two peoples who have suffered over the centuries of their existence “.

    “We come here with a sense of permanent gratitude for the Albanian people, and we will be together eternally, facing the challenges in our futures. We are also willing to provide our support in order to enhance the role of the Albanian diaspora in the US and influence the Albanian issue in American politics and administration, ” said the AJC’s Executive Director.
