Turkey re-builds Albanian Muslim Community's headquarters

The 90-year-old headquarters of the Muslim Community in Albania has been re-constructed by the Turkish International Cooperation and Development Agency (TIKA).

The new building in Tirana was inaugurated Tuesday with a ceremony attended by Albania's Minister of Culture, Tourism, Youth & Sports Ferdinand Xhaferri, TIKA's head Musa Kulaklikaya and Albania Muslim Community's President Selim Muca.

Speaking at the ceremony, Kulaklikaya said Turkey and Albania had common values dating back to history.

Kulaklikaya also noted that TIKA would soon take over the renovation of a Bektashi cultural center in the Albanian capital.

Officials said the re-construction of the Muslim Community building cost nearly 250,000 Euros.

Turkish International Cooperation and Development Agency (TIKA) is the Turkish government's development and cooperation agency.

TIKA has coordination offices in 20 countries and operates in many countries across Africa, Asia and Europe, delivering development assistance to partner countries through its projects and activities.
