In 1990, the Mexican executives had a negative response to Albania’s Foreign Affairs Minister request due to governmental commitments on the time requested. In the same year Albania was visited by a Mexican parliamentarian group.

On March first 1993, former Prime Minister Meksi, with the scope of intensifying Albania’s relations with various countries worldwide, sent a letter to the Mexican President where he asked him to deliver a diplomatic delegation in order to assess the cooperation opportunities between our countries. Mexico did not respond to this proposition.

In January 1994, the Mexican Ambassador in Albania, with residency in Rome, Mr. Delgato, presented his credentials to the President of the Republic of Albania. On this occasion former President Berisha invited in Albania the Mexican Foreign Affairs Minister and President Salinas.

Also the Foreign Affairs Minister of Mexico, Dr. Angel Gurria was set to visit Albania in the first half of 1997.
