VETËVENDOSJE ! is following closely and with concern for the issue of import from Syria in the Republic of Albania to combat a quantity of chemicals in order to destroy them.
As Albanians , are concerned about the lack of official information on this matter . In their statements , Edi Rama and Prime Minister of External Affairs , Ditmir Bushati informed that no deal yet , but talks . These talks should be completely transparent , and people should be informed and involved in any decision making process . This issue is very delicate , natural health risks endangering the citizens as well as the territorial integrity of our country and nature . This decision may not only belong to a Government that bears the mandate of the four -year interim .
We note that the acceptance of combat poisonous Syria in Albania , also goes against international conventions which prohibit the importation of these cases , either because of the destruction and . Also prohibited by the law itself the Republic of Albania against the import of waste law which in itself is an achievement of the government ‘s Edi Rama .
These chemicals are rejected by countries that possess much larger territories , which have strong technological capabilities and human resources prepared , so there is no reason to rush the Government of Albania and to accept , given the small territory , but also incidents that have occurred in the past.
Several international analysts have noted that Albania will accept these weapons , because the country is poor and easily bought . In such findings can not overlook a racism openly expressed , unequal treatment , prejudice and non- toned Albania . Albanians are a people completely equal with others , both in history and in their actuality . Their poverty is not genetic or natural , but the result of such bias , as a result of governments and unworthy , for years . We hope and are committed to movement , alongside citizens , both these factors are not accompany us during our history . Poverty will come to work and vision for development , rather than selling our bodies , or the collective body that is our country .
If the Government of Albania faces international pressure to accept these weapons , it is necessary popular pressure , which would help the Government would strengthen to say ” No ! ” import of chemical weapons .
The protest was held in Tirana , Pristina , Albanian and in many cities in Albania and abroad . Protests were also held in other cities , where Albanian immigrants . We urge our supporters to join these protests , and actualize the principles VETËVENDOSJE ! has expressed and continues to express , those active citizens , solidarity and the cause of our common homeland .
