Address of President Xhaferi on 2020 Balkans forum against anti-Semitism
Ladies and gentleman, attendees at this special virtual conference for the Balkans, focused on the fight against Semitism, I am pleased to be able to greet you in this manner and to wish you above all good health during this global threat for the health of each person.

We have seen a lot, and we are still seeing and apparently still learning how to prevent the recurrence of the horrors of the Holocaust, the genocide, discrimination and unequal treatment of people.
