I was so happy to see you at the ceremony, and was hoping you would be there! And it meant very much to me that you could again greet my sons. I try to remind them always of the struggles that you and your countrymen have faced for the cause of freedom.
It would be such a great honor to create a bust or a statue of Petro Zheji for you and for Albania. I trust that when the time is right, we will be able to do this project. I will be ready whenever you are ready.
Yes, friendship is so important. In today's world there are so many secular pressures for people to discard their friendship loyalties. You are clearly a man of your word, and a man of courage, and I am proud to call you my friend.
