The US Ambassador to Albania Yuri Kim greeted the repatriation of the five Albanian citizens from the camp in Syria.
In a Twitter post, the US diplomat urged Albanian authorities to continue with the operation and evacuate all citizens stranded at the camp.
Wonderful to see these innocent children freed from ISIS. Hope other steps will follow. Governments should repatriate their citizens from Syria so they can be rehabilitated and, where warranted, face justice. https://t.co/tr4nekK2ao

In addition, Ambassador Kim said that the rescued Albanian nationals need to be rehabilitated and eventually face justice for the reasons behind why they joined ISIS.
Albanian authorities have admitted that the operation posed several challenges but that they are “committed to evacuate all Albanian citizens trapped at the dangerous camps” in Syria.
