Albania decided to skip Junior Eurovision Song Contest this time despite getting a new chance to join.
According to ESC Plus, who reached the Albanian Head of Delegation, the country withdrew due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Kleart Duraj stated they don’t want to risk any participant this time even though there’s a new format for the contest in 2020. However, RTSH is going to come back when the situation improves.
