I feel honoured to congratulate the Albanian Institute for International Studies to its 10th anniversary! It is difficult to realize that this institution exists now only for 10 years because its impact on Albanian politics and in particular its reputation abroad gives one the feeling that this must be an old institution with long tradition! In fact, the institute has managed to become the number one address for interested international individuals and institutions who intend to communicate and cooperate with a competent and at the same time impartial partner on issues of common interest in the field of international politics and relations. I am proud to express my scholarly contacts with AIIS over so many years and can only underline how important it is for a country that tries to place itself amidst the European integration to possess an institution with such an international reputation and variety of connections abroad! The events, which had been organized by AIIS in Albania over the past years had always been characterized by high profiles of the invited participants, and have contributed to better understanding of the peculiarities of the Albanian situation domestically and in international relations. Let me wish the AIIS further success in all its future activities!
