Tirana, October 4, 2016 - The President of the Republic of Kosovo, Hashim Thaçi, visited today the Municipality of Tirana, where he was received by the Mayor, Erion Veliaj.

President Thaçi has congratulated Mayor Veliaj for his work and commitment for the new Tirana.

“With new labor and energy you are making the Municipality of Tirana  an example for all Albanians. You have changed and modernized it even more”, said President Thaçi.

Meanwhile, Mayor Veliaj informed President Thaçi about his work, about the joint meeting of the Albanian municipalities and about his plans to name a street in Tirana street with the name “The KLA street” (“Rruga e UÇK-së”).

“We are working in over 100 locations in Tirana. We are trying that with different projects to create public spaces for the citizens. We are staying away from major policies and are focused more on asphalting, parks and projects that improve the lives of the citizens, because it is good to be Albanians, but it is even better to live well as Albanians. When we live well, we are bigger”, said Mayor Veliaj.

Also, Veliaj has indicated that he has the blessing of President Thaçi for the joint meeting of the Albanian municipalities, which, according to him, comes as a need to deepen concrete cooperation and not to deal with folklore.

President Thaçi and Mayor Veliaj also discussed about the extension of the Kosovar businesses in Tirana and about the Albanian diaspora in general.
