Statement of the President of the Republic, H.E. Ilir Meta

I am very concerned about the situation of Albanian citizens who are still trapped at the Kakavija and Kapshtica border crossings.

This situation must be resolved immediately.

I call on all Albanian citizens to respect the conditions of urgency and necessity imposed by the pandemic of COVID-19 at our border crossings and at the same time I ask our responsible authorities to respect, not only the requirements of the situation of natural disaster, but also the constitutional and international obligations that the state has towards its citizens in such a situation.

Once again, I ask for more cooperation and understanding, solidarity and responsibility between the citizens and our authorities for the benefit of the public interest and life security.
