Tirana offers its support to Athens in order to cope with this natural disaster. This was the message given today by the mayor of Tirana, Erjon Veliaj while announcing the decision to allocate a fund of 50 thousand euros for Athens.
“What happened in the recent days in Athens has shocked us all. It’s a terrible tragedy. I felt a lot of pain about the men, women and children who lost their lives as a result of that massive fire. But, I have also felt proud for the solidarity shown by Albanian citizens toward our neighbours in these difficult days. A few weeks ago, I had the chance to visit the municipality of Athens, where I had a very good meeting with my counterpart there. I have expressed him the most sincere condolences on behalf of all the citizens of Tirana. Therefore, we have decided to allocate a modest amount in order to help with the relief efforts following this tragedy”, Veliaj said. /ibna/
