Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein hosted his Albanian counterpart, Ilir Meta. Prior to the meeting, the visitor and his entourage were greeted by the Knesset’s welcoming committee and Meta signed the Knesset’s guestbook in the Chagall Hall.
Edelstein told his guest that “Albania is a Muslim state that has proven that other ways are possible. I applaud you for visiting Israel’s Knesset and I am moved by your first visit to Israel. Relations between Israel and Albania continue to deepen and I hope that during your visit here today we can join together to further strengthen ties.”
During the visit, Meta expressed his deepest condolences for the loss of the three murdered boys and expressed hope that those responsible would be brought to justice.
