Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken met today with Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama in Washington, D.C.  Secretary Blinken and Prime Minister Rama celebrated the 100th anniversary of U.S.-Albanian diplomatic relations and the Secretary praised Albania’s continued tradition of providing safe harbor to those in need by hosting at-risk Afghans.  The Secretary noted our strong cooperation at NATO and on the UN Security Council, and thanked Prime Minister Rama for Albania’s clear support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity against Russian aggression.  The Secretary reiterated U.S. support for Albania’s EU accession and regional economic integration, while emphasizing the need to fully implement justice reform and combat corruption.
