U.S. Embassy Statement

Today, Ambassador Lu met with former PM and DP MP Sali Berisha to discuss current developments in Albanian politics.  Ambassador Lu reiterated U.S. support for the process of decriminalization by all parties and the importance of the opposition’s constructive participation in that process to strengthen democratic institutions. Regarding the allegations made by Mr. Doshi against Mr. Meta, this is a matter for Albanians to resolve. Ambassador Lu emphasized that the United States will not undertake an investigation of those allegations but rather, there should be a thorough and independent investigation of the claims by the Prosecutor General.
