Albania officially starts two-year mandate at the United Nations Security Council

In this context, the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, Olta Xhaçka, published a video wishing all Albanians for the New Year and the beginning of the mandate at the Security Council.

Minister Xhaçka highly praised this achievement of Albanian diplomacy, emphasizing the fact that today Albania is seen around the world as a serious actor, with a stable and credible policy and a serious contributor to security and peace issues.

"Albania will use this opportunity to advance the Kosovo issue, the process of recognition and membership in international organizations because Kosovo has been, is and will be a sacred cause for Albania. We will work for the Albanians, but we will also work for our region to consolidate the achievements of the last decades and not to let it slide towards destabilization and tensions. We will work with our allies and partners to advance the agenda of our common priorities, thus further consolidating the strong ties that unite us. Let`s approach 2022 and the challenges in front of us with the same spirit and determination and I have no doubts that the future that we built together for our children and families will be a bright one", said the minister in the video.

This is the first time in 66 years of UN membership that Albania will sit for a two-year term as a non-permanent member in the United Nations Security Council.
