Thank you for the words you addressed to the Albanian people today and for my appreciation of your proud and successful effort so far against the pandemic. It is a pleasure and an honor for us to have so much stars here in this small country and I am convinced that this exercise is much more than an important moment of all the joint work in order to increase and demonstrate our capacities. This exercise is another important point in further climbing our relationship to the highest point. We constantly value these great relationships but the fact is that they can always be even more great thanks to a reciprocal interaction. Our generation grew up with the idea that you should not be allowed to trespass in this country, and we were molded with the conviction that you are the greatest evil that can happen to Albania and the whole world. For our generation it is a great miracle that has divided life between two worlds, the dark one and this world where we proudly and respectfully welcome our American friends and partners. I want to believe that after your landing in Albania, what will happen to you, what happens to everyone when they come to Albania, that you will want to return again. Our country is not a recommended place because of stereotypes, but whoever comes wants to come back again. Lastly, I believe that what we all need to keep in mind is the obligation to pass on to other generations this trust that is so important for the future of our country. The mandate of this strategic relationship for freedom and democracy not only of Albania but of the whole world, investing to do more for the younger generation and give the younger generation the opportunity to be educated with values, principles and standards. senior NATO forces. It is a historic moment. We want to be worthy and most valuable within this alliance. We give a message to the whole region and to anyone who needs an answer for our stand by the US and all other countries that have decided to pay any price for freedom and democracy ", said Prime Minister Rama.
