Turkish Embassy in Tirana

Ambassador's Message

Dear fellow citizens,

First and foremost, I would like to inform all of you that I have started my mission in Albania on 15 November 2013.

The excellent level of bilateral relations between Turkey and Albania are based on mutual historical past, friendship, trust and solidarity. Our cultural and historical ties give additional opportunity to further enhance our bilateral relations.

Political relations between two countries are excellent. Furthermore, the relation and cooperation in military, security, economic, trade and cultural fields with Albania continue intensely. I am very pleased to note that there are many Turkish investments in Albania in various sectors, namely education, construction, telecommunication, finance, banking, iron-steel and mining. 

The two countries regard each other as “strategic partners”. In this respect, the relation and cooperation between two countries are expected to develop in all fields in the near future.

Cooperation opportunities are continuously developing through Turkish citizens resident in Albania as employer and employee; through Albanian-origin Turkish citizens or Albanian citizens resident in Turkey due to educational, health, employment or marriage reasons.

One of our primary objectives is to develop our relations and contact with our citizens in Albania and solve their problems.

The primary mission of our Embassy and related institutions with TİKA (Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency) and Yunus Emre Turkish Cultural Center in Albania is to represent Turkey and protect the rights and interests of our citizens, while further developing our relations and cooperation.

I am very proud of being assigned as the Ambassador to Albania in a period where the bilateral relations and cooperation with Albania are developing as such. I personally believe that I need your precious contributions in performing this duty, as well as the efforts of our Embassy and the related institutions.

This website aims to provide you with up-to-date and useful information on our activities and to support you in promptly completing your possible transactions. On behalf of myself, our Embassy’s staff and of related institutions, I extend to you my deepest regards and best wishes.
