HC Deb 16 June 1986 vol 99 c432W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if there are any plans to re-open formal diplomatic relations with Albania; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Renton

We formally notified the Albanian Government in 1980 that we were ready to re-establish diplomatic relations without preconditions. As we have made clear, this offer remains open, but the Albanian Government have regrettably not yet taken it up.
