ADDRESS OF THE PRESIDENT XHAFERI AT THE SOLEMN ACADEMY ON THE OCCASION OF THE 550TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE DEATH OF GJERGJ KASTRIOT SKANDERBEG
"I am a friend of virtue, not of fate", this is a quote from Gjergj Kastriot Skanderbeg's letter addressed to the Neapolitan king Ferdinand. I quote this saying of the Great Skanderbeg because in essence it reflects precisely his character and his system of values that pervades his whole life.

Address of the President Xhaferi at the Meeting of IPPG “Family for Every Child”
When I have read the program for today’s meeting, especially the topic “Family for Every Child”, I recalled the novel of Charles Dickens “Oliver Twist” , whose narration starts with the depiction of the living conditions of children without parents in an orphanage and their severe abuse. I believe that many of you have read the novel or watched a filmed adaptation of this novel.

Address of the President Xhaferi at the Opening of the Science Conference on Air Pollution
„Think locally, act globally“is the motto in the activities of many Green NGOs and Green Political Parties. I believe that this manner of thought, if you wish, philosophy of life, should be the foundation of the awareness for the ecology, thus the foundation of the care of the environment of every human on the Planet Earth. I personally think that as peace is undividable category, the protection of the environment, in other words the care for our planet is an undividable category.

Address of the President of the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia, Mr. Talat Xhaferi at the 8th Conference of Speakers of Parliament of the Countries of the Western Balkans “EU Integration: Results And Aspirations”
This is the Eight Conference of Presidents of Parliament from our Region, the Western Balkan, organized by the Hungarian National Assembly and these meetings become a tradition which I am confident will continue. I want to seize this opportunity and to express appreciation to our host, the distinguished colleague, Laszlo Kover, as well as to the Hungarian National Assembly for the demonstrated continuity in their international activities, in other words, the parliamentary diplomacy for the Western Balkan States. Certainly, this is a sign of principle foreign policy of Hungary towards the Western Balkan Sates and their integration in EU. This is a policy based on the determination of open doors and the enlargement of the European family. In this manner, Hungary openly manifests the essential principle Europe is founded on, the principle of solidarity.

Promoting cultural pluralism and peace through inter-faith and inter-ethnic dialogue
Planet Earth persists and is pretty, above all, due to the natural biodiversity. I personally believe that the ethnic, cultural, linguistic and religious diversity, in other words, differences that create and move the human civilization, are of equal importance for the survivor of the Planet.
