Lieberman Inaugurates 10th Israeli Mission


Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman dedicated Israel's embassy in Albania on Thursday. Reflecting on dramatic changes around the world, including progress and raprochement between the two countries, he told those in attendance, "It could not occur to me, during my studies as a student in the Soviet Union, that the day would come and I would stand in the capital of Albania as foreign minister of Israel and dedicate the Israeli embassy here."

The Tirana facility is the the tenth Israeli diplomatic mission around the world to be opened since Lieberman became foreign minister and three more are scheduled to open in the upcoming year.
