Prime Minister Edi Rama recalled the 22nd anniversary of the NATO bombing of Belgrade to defend Kosovo. In a twitter post, the head of government recounted the speech of the then US President Bill Clinton, who gave the historic news.
Rama says this is an indelible date in the history of Albanian-American relations.
"The historic address of President Bill Clinton for the bombing of the National Socialist regime of Belgrade in defense of martyred Kosovo, makes today an indelible date in the history of Albanian-American relations," writes Edi Rama.
In his speech at the time, Bill Clinton said, among other things: " At the moment, Serbian troops are moving from one village to another, shelling civilians and torturing their houses. We are seeing innocent people taken from their homes, forced to live in their dirt and sprayed with bullets . Kosovar men dragged from their families, fathers and children together, lined up, and shot in cold blood.
What is happening in Kosovo has nothing to do with war in a traditional sense; it is an attack by tanks and arthillery against innocent people whose leaders have already agreed to peace. So, compatriots, let us fight to put an end to this tragedy, which for us is a moral request " said Clinton.
