On October 3, 1990, East and West Germany were to be merged into one.

On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the union, the chairman of the Democratic Party Lulzim Basha reacted with a message.

Basha: The reunification of Germany 30 years ago marked the beginning of the fall of the walls throughout Eastern Europe and laid the foundations of unity around the values of freedom, democracy and human dignity. Naturally, we also celebrate this day today as a reminder on the road to the overthrow of the regime that kept us for 50 years away from European values but also as an inspiration for the road full of challenges in defense of freedom. Today we are proud of an ally like Germany, which is Albania’s biggest supporter of EU integration and stands by us in defense of the values of freedom and democracy.
