Greece delivers demarche over Tirana photo exhibition claiming ‘genocide’ of Cham Albanians

The Greek embassy in Tirana has lodged a demarche of strong protest, which demands an immediate explanation from the office of the Albanian President Ilir Meta regarding an exhibition of photographs and maps held at the presidential mansion in Tirana, which makes claims regarding an alleged “genocide of the Cham Albanians” and an “occupation of Albanian territory by Greece,” diplomatic sources said on Friday.

The photographs, which have been posted on the outer fence of the Albanian Presidential Mansion, are accompanied by accusations against Greece regarding the “Cham Albanians genocide”, as well as maps depicting the greater part of Greece as “occupied Albanian lands”.

The same sources noted that the Albanian President, Ilir Meta, was given a tour of the exhibition by the organisers.
