Minister Bushati hosted Iftar Dinner

Minister Bushati hosted Iftar Dinner
 
27 June 2016, in respect and honor of the holy month of Ramadan, Foreign Minister Ditmir Bushati hosted for the third consecutive year an iftar dinner, thus turning this sacred day into a genuine tradition. Present at this dinner, in addition to representatives of the Muslim community, were government representatives and the diplomatic corps accredited in Albania.
In his address, Minister Bushati stated that: "In our country, celebrating the holy month of Ramadan is a tradition, together with the celebration of Christmas, Easter or the Day of Ashura. This shows something which our ancestors have nurtured for centuries; tolerance and interreligious brotherhood, always in the service of national identity.”
“Albania may not be a materially rich country, but our spiritual bounty, conveyed through a mosaic of religions, can and must be an added value to societies of EU countries, where we aspire to become members”- Bushati noted, underlining that inter-religious harmony and the way how different religious communities have lived and live alongside each other in our country is like a leitmotiv that permeates the history of Albanian people and the Albanian state.
