U.S. Embassy Statement

The U.S. Embassy strongly condemns the use of explosives in separate attacks today in Tirana. The use of violence as a means of intimidation and coercion is a cowardly act that undermines democracy and has no place in today’s Albania. The U.S. Embassy is proud to continue its longstanding support for Albania’s Ministry of Interior, Police, and other security services in the fight against organized crime, narcotics trafficking, and corruption.
