"Albanians should be part of the whole", was the comment of the Minister, who emphasized the avoidance isolation or of dual identity.

During the meeting, the MPs questioned the Minister about the Albanian state strategy for the diaspora and the intention to guarantee to them the right of the emigrants to vote.
