Extremely friendly meeting with the Director of the American Jewish Committee (AJC, Jerusalem), Mrs. Avital Leibovich.

A strong woman, maximally engaged in creating bridges of cooperation between the Jewish community in the world, the state of Israel and Albania and Kosovo.

Albanians have proved early on the uniqueness and courage through the code of protection of the friend, when in World War II in our country thousands of Jews were sheltered and rescued. Our friendship with the people of Israel and the further strengthening of relations with our great allies, the United States of America, are not part of any agenda, but a natural approach with friends and supporters of our country to common challenges.

A special thanks to Vali, member of Combat Anti-Semitism Movement’s Advisory Board., for organizing this meeting with women politicians and civil society.
