The Central Committee of the Albanian Party of Labour

Dear Comrades:

The Communist Party of China warmly congratulates the Albanian Party of Labour on the 25th anniversary of its founding and on the great successes it has scored in revolution and socialist construction over the past 25 years.

Under the leadership of the Central Committee headed by its long-tested leader Comrade Enver Hoxha, the glorious Albanian Party of Labour has experienced 25 years replete with valiant struggles and brilliant victories. The Albanian Party of Labour is a genuine Marxist-Leninist Party, highly principled and loyal to the people; it is a heroic and dauntless proletarian revolutionary Party which dares to struggle and dares to win victory.

The Albanian Party of Labour has led the heroic Albanian people in achieving the liberation of their motherland through arduous revolutionary wars and in scoring tremendous victories in socialist revolution and socialist construction after establishing the state power of the people and overcoming numerous difficulties on their road of advance. Socialist Albania is a great and invincible red base towering in Europe.

The Albanian Party of Labour perseveres in the socialist road and has taken a series of measures of revolutionization in the political, economic, military and cultural fields. These measures have important theoretical and practical significance for the enrichment of the international experience of the dictatorship of the proletariat.

The Albanian Party of Labour holds high the banner of Marxism-Leninism and proletarian internationalism. It stands up indomitably to imperialism and revisionism, to war threats and isolation. The Albanian Party of Labour firmly opposes imperialism headed by the United States, world reaction, and modern revisionism with the leading clique of the C.P.S.U. as its centre; it resolutely supports the Vietnamese people’s heroic war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation and the revolutionary struggles of all oppressed peoples and oppressed nations. By persevering in principle and in struggle, the Albanian Party of Labour has set a glorious example to all Marxist-Leninists and revolutionary people the world over.

The Parties and peoples of China and Albania have always supported each other and fought shoulder to shoulder in the struggle against their common enemy and for the cause of socialism and communism. Theirs is a revolutionary friendship, a militant friendship, a Marxist-Leninist and proletarian internationalist friendship. We are deeply convinced that in the years to come, this great friendship between our two Parties and two peoples will certainly become further consolidated and further develop and will shine forth with yet greater brilliance.

The Central Committee of the
Communist Party of China
