In Commemoration of 30th anniversary of relations between Albania-Israel, Albanian Embassy in Israel appreciates all the hard work and diligent efforts that Rafael Faust has put into promoting Albanian-Israeli ties as Honorary Consul of Albania.
Albania and Israel celebrate the 30-year journey through cordial diplomatic relations, simultaneous high-level visits and by many signed agreements and memorandums.
Today marks 30 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between Albania and Israel, on August 19, 1991.
Last June, I was honoured to become the first Israeli to be decorated with Albania’s second highest decoration, in the name of Albania’s national hero, Skanderbeg
I believe that the word “Israel” in Albania is to a large extent connected with the democratic, pluralistic, dynamic and flourishing nature of our country.
The invitation I received from them on that occasion to visit Albania was the beginning of a special relationship I developed with Albania and the Albanian people, a relationship which continues to this very day.
