4 July 2018 President Meta congratulates US President Donald Trump on 242nd anniversary of Independence Day
Dear Mr. President,
On the 242nd anniversary of Independence Day, I would like to extend to You the sincere and heartfelt congratulations on behalf of the Albanian people and my own. On this meaningful occasion we wish You personally and all Americans around the world every success, peace and prosperity.
Every Albanian strongly believes in the solid alliance established between our countries, upon the historic fundaments of genuine friendship and cooperation. As the President of the country, I assure You of the unwavering commitment to further strengthen this partnership based on our shared principles that forever unite the United States of America and Albania.
While thanking You, Mr. President for the continuous support to my country, I want to emphasize the importance of an increasing US presence in Albania and the Western Balkan region, as a key factor to enhancing peace, stability and security.
We stand ready to further strengthen our NATO and bilateral Security Strategic Partnership, and I strongly believe that under Your leadership we will be able to deepen these ties and further expand cooperation between our countries, to the benefit of freedom and prosperity of our nations, and beyond.
Albania will continue to stand in solidarity with the United States of America, and will, modestly but resolutely, join Your efforts in multilateral foras in providing new opportunities for peace in the world.
It is with great pleasure I also congratulate, through You, the Albanian- American community living in the USA, who represent a remarkable historic tie, and bond us to an ever promising future among our nations.
Congratulations again on the United States of America Independence Day and my best wishes to you, your family and the great American people. Please accept, Mr. President, the assurances of my highest consideration.
