Meta answers which way he would go if he had to choose between Berisha non grata and America
At the weekly press conference, Ilir Meta was asked about his relationship with Berisha or if there is a crisis between them.
Journalist: A lack of coherence has been noticed in recent days between you and Berisha. Is there a crisis in your relationship?
Meta: There is no crisis except those invented by Edi Rama's mind. I believe that PD and PL have had a coherence that has shown the Albanians that the theft that Edi Rama claimed to do, through quadrupling the bill, was to cover the thefts of the government.
Then Meta was also asked about the 2-hour meeting with the American ambassador that took place a week ago at the Freedom Party. Meta was asked if he had spoken to the ambassador about his relationship with Berisha and if he had been asked to distance himself from him.
Journalist: Were you asked to distance yourself from Berisha in the 2-hour meeting with the American ambassador?
Meta: We had a very open conversation. Of course, we cannot share the same opinions and assessments about everything. We have different positions. I am a politician, the ambassador is a diplomat.
Journalist: What if there will be such an articulated request to distance yourself from Berisha or to break your relations with America, what would be your choice.
Meta: In no case will my and PL's relationship with the US be affected. From the name Liria, it is the party of freedom. The people decide, and America has shown in every case that it respects the will of the people.
