Skanderbeg and Hunyadi, together again

 After nearly six centuries of separation, two old shields of European Christianity, the Albanian national hero Gjergj Kastriot Skanderbeg and the national hero of Hungary, Janos Hunyadi, are back together. 

In a special cermoni Tirana Mayor, Erion Veliaj and Janusz Ader, President of Hungary who is visiting Albania, placed in front of the statue of Skanderbeg a commemorative plaque of Janos Hunyadi. 

"There was no moment in the history of Skanderbag where Hunyadi is not mentioned, as a great statesman and a friend of the Albanians and Skanderbeg. Hunyadi is a major figure not only for Hungarians and Albanians. A figure that marks forever the excellent relations between our peoples. A friendship that dates back hundreds of years ago," said on this occasion Mr. Veliaj.

The two personalities have praised the desire to deepen relations between them. Hungarian President Ader, who is in Tirana on the occasion of 94-s anniversary of the founding of diplomatic relations, during meetings with Albanian President Nishani, Prime Minister Rama and the head of parliament Meta, repeated the refrain that Hungary will be an advocate for Albania integration into Europe.
