Honorary Consul attends Arabian National Day

Posted on 27 September 2013 from Administrator

The international day of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia gathered diplomats of Tirana in a special reception.
The event was organized to celebrate the 84-th anniversary of the foundation of this kingdom. High officials of Albania, the head of the parliament Ilir meta, the head of the opposition and the mayor of Tirana, Lulzim Basha, the minister of transportation Edmond Haxhinasto, leaders of diplomatic legations in our country, businessmen, leaders of religious institutions and personalities of culture were present in this event. The Honorary Council of Mexico in Albania mr. Ylli Ndroqi was also one of the special guests of this event.

According to Ambassador Abdullah Alabdukarim this is a very important moment in the history of Aaudi Arabia since this date represents the unification of the territories of Arabia in 1932 under the leaderships of the king of that time Abdul Aziz al Saud.

“This party is very important, since I can remind you that king Abdul Aziz, with his efforts and attempts managed to join all territories of Saudi Arabia. Since that time Saudi Arabia has faced a quick development in every domain, especially in economics and health-care” stated ambassador Abdullah Alabdukarim.

This party took place in Albania and the relationships of both countries have intensively strengthened, especially during the last years. A series of infrastructural projects have finished and will finish in the territory of the Albanian Republic.

“The cooperation between Albania and Saudi Arabia has been successful especially during the last years. This fact can be noticed in the high number of commercial exchanges and in the visits of high officials of our both countries. During this period of time Saudi Arabia has completed a series of important infrastructural projects in Albania and it has released specific funds for these projects. I would like to mention the highway of Tirana-Elbasan, but Saudi Arabia will also be present in other investments in Albania,” emphasized the ambassador.

Every year on september 23rd, Saudi Arabia commemorates the foundation of the country in 1932 and its territory has remained the same for 84 years. In 1932 the king of Al Saud dynasty declared the unification of all the territories in a single state and after his attempts which lasted for 32 years, he finally managed to create a single state for the first time in our history.\

This state was founded on Islamic principles, away from the influence of other sectarian organizations. This date marks not only the unification of Arabic territories but it also marks the strong turn of this country in the path of development in all domains, especially in infrastructure, health-care and education. Saudi Arabia managed to build models which were later followed from other Arabic and Islamic countries. Saudi Arabia continues to develop under the leadership of current king, Abdullah bin Abdul aziz.

Boy Heroes of Chapultepec

Posted on 17 September 2013 from Administrator

Ninos

On May 13, 1846 the United States declared war on Mexico, with the aim of seizing Alta California, New Mexico and other territories in the north of the country.

On September 8, American invaders seized Molino del Rey, to advance towards the last Mexican military redoubt on their way to Mexico City: Chapultepec Castle, which housed the Military College, where there were over 50 cadets.

The castle’s defense was entrusted to General Nicolás Bravo, a former insurgent. However, the general had just over 800 soldiers to defend the fortress from over 7,000 U.S. soldiers.

General Bravo ordered the underage cadets to withdraw, but most did not. On the morning of September 12, 1847, American batteries engaged in an intense bombardment of the castle, to devastating effect.

At dawn on September 13, they once again bombarded the Castle but at nine o’clock the firing ceased, and the American soldiers began their ascent of the hill, on the west side. They fought hand to hand. The Mexicans fought bravely but the invaders were gaining ground and made it to the castle on the west side.

By the time the Americans reached the castle, only a few soldiers and cadets remained inside. Six of these Boy Heroes are etched in the country’s memory: Juan Escutia, Vicente Suárez, Fernando Montes de Oca, Francisco Márquez, Agustín Melgar and Lieutenant Juan de la Barrera, who gave their lives during the U.S. attack on Chapultepec Castle on September 13, 1847.

President Benito Juárez was the first to officially honor the epic deed of the Boy Heroes, by decreeing September 13th a national day of mourning in memory of the cadets who died in Chapultepec Castle.
