The Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, Olta Xhaçka, participated in the 41st session of the UNESCO General Conference, which coincided with the 75th anniversary of the establishment of this organization.
Minister Xhaçka praised the contribution that Albania gives to the UN system, while confirming that our country supports the reforms undertaken by UNESCO, for its modernization and strategic transformation.
Xhaçka once again brought to the attention of all member countries of the organization, the issue of Kosovo's membership, based on the principle of inclusion.
"The inclusion of Kosovo, not only would be the right thing, but it is a necessity if the real priority is to address the repeated claims regarding the preservation of cultural and historical heritage in Kosovo. Because the truth is that there is no better and more efficient way to deal with the preservation of cultural heritage than through joint national and international efforts. Therefore I sincerely hope that reason will prevail and Kosovo will be welcomed here, so that its citizens, Albanians, Serbs, and others, can join this great community and work together with other states in promoting the principles and values that unite us all ", said Minister Xhaçka in her speech.
Welcoming and congratulating the organization on this anniversary, Xhaçka expressed confidence in the continuation of the unique role and contribution of the organization in addressing global challenges.
