    [05] STATEMENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF NATIONAL SALVATION

    TIRANA, MARCH 13 (ATA)

    In the conditions of the national denigration where set political forces and other segments in service of foreign intelligence agencies led Albania, in the conditions when the state segments do not function, in the conditions when destructive forces in Albania and abroad aim at regional separation and cutting up the country, in the conditions where the life of citizens is in danger, we declare: the establishment of the Committee of National Salvation.

    This committee aims to restore the constitutional order and rule of law, the protection of democracy, its institutions and our national integrity.

    The committee is seat in Tirana and has actually its branches in the whole Northern part of Albania. We have in our program:

    1. The salvation of Albania from separation and disintegration. For us Albania is one as a whole, from Konispol to Vermosh. Every part of it is holy for us and we will protect it with our lives.
    2. The military committee established in several southern districts is considered by us a dangerous precedent which leads to the separation of Albania and regional war, in ruining democracy, pluralism, rule of law, in the moral and national capitulation opposite to the irresistible selfishness of the anti national and anti democratic clans in the country.
    3. We are ready for any talks with the Southern committee only as a party without the mediation of the state.
    4. We considered failed and responsible for the situation in the country the political class in Albania. This class did not rise above the provincialism of rebel crowds in South, leading the country to a dead-lock. The delayed compromise of the political parties is in danger exactly by the ill will of some of them.
    5. We call on the political parties to rise upon the ideological interests and political profits because they will be judged without mercy by the today and other generations of Albania for the tragedy to the Albanian nation.
    6. We support the government of Fino established on the basis of the platform of national reconciliation and support by all means its efforts for the maintenance of order, tranquillity, to stop the violence and terror in the country.
    7. Any offensive and armed resistance against us will be punished on the basis of laws of war, as well as any other anti popular and anti national act of our acts will be condemned by these laws.
    8. We call on our brothers, the Southern Albanians, all the democrats and patriots of this side of Albania to support our efforts for the protection of the freedom, the independence and the national integrity, for the protection of democracy and the Constitutional Order.
    9. We call on the outstanding Albanians wherever they live in the world to come in Albania and help for the normalization of the situation.
    10. We call on all officers, reservists and military of every level to go under arms for the national rescue, to obey to the military discipline and its rules.
    11. We call on Albanian people to protect the Albanian integrity in every corner from South to North, to protect the peace and nation's honour.

    Long live Albania!
