We read all the highlights, just to present a different history.

Speaking of Albania, many young friends may not have much impression. However, in the minds of older generations, this is a complicated European country. Albania, the full name of the Republic of Albania, is located in the southwestern part of the Balkan Peninsula. Its capital is Tirana. It covers an area of ​​28,700 square kilometers and has a population of only about 2.8 million. It is a typical small European country.

It is said that as long as a small country has strong external support, it should be able to quickly develop and become rich. However, Albania has violated this common sense-the former Soviet Union has assisted Albania for 15 years, and China has assisted the country for 20 years. However, Albania is still Poor and poor, it is not at all like Japan, South Korea, and Israel in the support of the United States, Britain and other countries to quickly become developed countries. In particular, Israel is clearly facing severe international pressure and can be supported by the United States. Compared with Israel, Albania has obvious conditions. It’s much better. There are no external problems at all. With a little support from big countries, they should soon be among the ranks of developed countries. How can they continue to “cannot support”?

Things have to start from the end of World War II. After this war, the Soviet Union became the only superpower besides the United States, its national strength was very strong, and it supported many "brothers" on the European continent. In January 1946, the People’s Republic of Albania was formally established. In order to infiltrate the Balkans, the Soviet Union provided strong support to Albania.Annual meeting provides free economic assistance, and also sends a large number of skilled workers and experts to help Albania establish an industrial system. During the fifteen years of Soviet assistance, the Albanians had a very comfortable life.

As the saying goes, "cannibalism, short hands", the reason why the Soviet Union aided Albania was actuallyIt is to contain Yugoslavia through Albania. I didn't know that Albania was not in the street at all. It took the money from the Soviet Union and directly rejected the Soviet Union's infiltration request. In the end, it turned against the Soviet Union and officially withdrew from the Warsaw Pact in 1968. As a result, the Soviet Union was disgraced and quickly cut off the aid of the countries of the socialist camp to Albania.

After losing the assistance of the Soviet Big Brother, Albania took the initiative to find China. Due to the deterioration of Sino-Soviet relations at that time, "the enemy of the enemy is a friend", so our country gladly accepted Albania and started an aid operation for more than two decades. For this reason, my country has sent a large number of experts and construction teams to Albania to assist in infrastructure construction. So far, many government buildings, roads, railways, and street office buildings in Albania have been constructed with my country's assistance. In addition, at that time, my country also granted Albania a large amount of foreign exchange and low-interest loans every year. At that time, there was a song called "Tirana-Beijing" in Albania, and "Beijing-Tirana" was sung everywhere in our country. Tirana and Albania were known to all the people.

Unfortunately, the Albanians who enjoy the aid of the great powers, instead of becoming a developed country, think that with the aid, they can enjoy high welfare without worry. As a result, the policy has gradually become lazy and unwilling to carry out labor production activities. Many high-quality special steels produced in our country are reluctant to use them. They are used to support Albania. As a result, they are used by the country to make telephone poles, and there are many precious materials. Piled in the warehouse, a thick layer of ash accumulated.

After China cut off Albania’s aid, Albania has therefore He immediately turned his face and publicly advocated the threat theory, and continued to run on our country within the United Nations. So far we regard our country as an enemy. During the 35 years of aid, Albania’s overall national strength has not developed at all, and its industrial progress has been small. Sitting and eating in the sky, now in poverty, GDP per capita is only 4582 US dollars (2017 data), ranking sixth from the bottom in Europe, which is really embarrassing.
