‘It is a special pleasure to welcome the great artist Dua Lipa today. I say great artist, but she is also a simple girl, who has given the greatest pride to us, Albania, Kosovo and wherever there are Albanians in the world. You are an example and a source of inspiration for the Albanian youth and you have shown that dreams can be achieved by working harder. Tomorrow, we celebrate the 110th anniversary of the declaration of independence and today a joint meeting of the Assembly of Albania and the Assembly of Kosovo took place in Tirana. Although art is not related to politics, it still brings together all people and with  your art, you have brought us together in this jubilee year! On this occasion, I am pleased to grant you the Albanian citizenship’, said President Begaj.
