Albanian PM: Without Skanderbeg, there would be no Arberesh
The President of Albania, Ilir Meta attended today an activity held in the Museum of Kruja, which commemorates the historical journey of the Albanian National Hero, Gjergj Kastrioti Skanderbeg from Istanbul to the center of Arberia.

“I think that we have an  inseparable trinomial: Skanderbeg-Arberesh-Albania. Without Skanderbeg, we would have no Arberesh. Without the Arberesh, would could have lost the figure of Skanderbeg. Not only this, but with the help of the Arberesh, the figure of Skanderbeg returned to these lands to inspire the National Renaissance, which also brought the independence of Albania”, he said.

Meta added that “we are eternally grateful to the Arberesh, who for centuries managed to preserve not only the language, tradition, culture, religion, love for the country of their ancestors, but also their immense love for the figure of Skanderbeg”. /ibna/
