In New York, respectively in Arthur Aveny of the Bronx, known as the Albanian neighborhood, today was inaugurated the street named after our National Hero, Gjergj Kastrioti Skënderbeu.

Unable to celebrate the road inauguration ceremony together, the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, sent a congratulatory letter to the organizers of the event.

Prime Minister Kurti congratulated the initiators for the commitment and work done to name the street after the national hero.

Through this greeting, let me cordially congratulate you for the commitment and work you have done to realize this name of the street "Gjergj Kastrioti Skënderbeu". "I am currently in Michigan and I am sorry that I could not be there with you today, but with all my compatriots we greet you from our gathering here in Detroit," Kurti's letter reads.

He has emphasized that our national hero is in our hearts wherever we are and wherever we go.

"The Albanian diaspora is active in the United States of America, lives in the community, is politically organized and seeks to leave its mark on the urban topography of New York. Therefore, in order to remember the Albanian identity, it requires the establishment of Skanderbeg and Fan Noli as street names in New York. "Once again, thank you for your invitation and I look forward to joining you in the upcoming events in New York," reads the letter from the Prime Minister.21Media
