The visit of the Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nikos Dendias, is being protested by the Party for Justice, Integrity and Unity and the Patriotic Association Chameria.  

Demonstrators clashed with the Albanian State Police outside of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs building as the leader of PDIU, Shpëtim Idrizi, warned that protests will continue even though their request to rally was turned down due to the restrictions imposed from COVID-19.

“There is no force that can contain us in all our right to protest because the Albanian government hid its agenda, unlike Greece. Today, only the Greek agenda is being advanced”, said Idrizi.

“From the Knight of Chameria, he turned into the Trojan Horse of Greece”, said the PDIU leader for Prime Minister Edi Rama.

At least one protester has been detained during the clashes with the police.

Idrizi is accusing the Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias of taking advantage of the pandemic to advance their irredentist claims.
