The US Ambassador to Tirana, Yuri Kim, attended the Conference "Albanian-American Relations - In the Past, Present and Future", where she spoke about the relations between the two countries, which have become stronger and stronger in these 30 years.
Among other things, Ambassador Kim focused on Justice Reform and the support that the US has given for its realization.
"During the past thirty years, U.S.-Albanian relations have prospered and grown. The United States has been a strong partner, Ally, and friend to Albania as it strengthens its democracy, opens up its economy, and provides opportunity for all its people. The United States supports Albania’s European Union membership goal, as it did Albania’s pursuit of NATO membership.
As a valued NATO Ally, Albania has demonstrated constancy and commitment to our security partnership – anywhere in the world. We are proud to stand as NATO Allies with Albania.
The United States is a staunch supporter in Albania’s efforts to implement justice reform, strengthen rule of law and governance, and create conditions for inclusive economic growth. The United States remains committed to a democratic, secure, and prosperous future for Albania, as a full member of the European Union for the benefit of its citizens and the entire region.
We’ve come a long way in 30 years, and we look forward to many more decades of being side by side!" said Kim.
