November 26th, 2015

The President of the Republic, H. E. Mr. Bujar Nishani received a congratulatory message from the United States President Barack Obama on the occasion of our Independence Day.

“Dear Mr. President,

On behalf of the American people, best wishes to you and the people of Albania on your Independence Day this November 28.

This is also an occasion to reflect on the strong and enduring partnership the United States and Albania enjoy, as underscored by the signing of the U.S-Albania Strategic Partnership in April. The United States remains committed to assisting Albania advance on the path towards full Euro-Atlantic integration.

I am grateful for Albania’s contributions to fostering peace and stability in the Balkans and around the world. This includes Albania’s valuable assistance as a member of the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL and in countering violent extremism in the Balkans. On this and many other important areas, I look forward to deepening our cooperation in the years to come.

Again, my congratulations as you mark this happy occasion.

Sincerely,

Barack Obama”
