Summary note
A file of correspondence and reports concerning diplomatic relations between Albania and the United Kingdom. The documents cover discussions on the possible reestablishment of relations with Albania -- discussions on possible Albanian interest in expanding the country's foreign relations, noting the establishment of diplomatic links with a number of West European countries -- and articles in the British press on rumours of Albanian interest in forging links with Britain. Other documents in the file discuss the benefits of establishing relations with Albania in light of its geographical position and its close association with China -- and the factors affecting Anglo-Albanian relations, including Albania's failure to pay Britain compensation following the Corfu Channel incident in 1946, the withholding of Albanian gold held by the Tripartite Commission, and Albanian anger at a post-Second World War British plot to unseat the Albanian leader, Enver Hoxha.
