Full message:

On November 28, 1912, the Albanian people crowned the aspiration for an independent Albania. This act, as well as the raising of the flag in Vlora, are sacred acts in our common history, which we have built with effort and sacrifice.

This date has a lot of historical weight. On that day, the legendary Commander Adem Jashari was born, and on the same day, the Kosovo Liberation Army appeared in public for the first time. These two events give even more meaning to November, because they carry within them the spirit of freedom, the ideal of the generations of Skanderbeg, Ismail Qemajli, Isa Boletini and many other patriots.

On the occasion of the 109th anniversary of independence, I wish Albania, as well as Kosovo, success in all fields! Kosovo will continue to stand alongside Albania, further deepening our sibling ties, as well as strategic ones!

Happy Flag Day, congratulations on Albania Independence Day! May God bless the Republic of Albania and the Republic of Kosovo!
