A bust of U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has been erected in Albania's southernmost city of Saranda to honor what officials say is her contribution to Albania in the international arena.

A ceremony was held Thursday at a main street to unveil the bust, initiated by a local non-governmental organization and the Saranda city hall.

The city council took a unanimous decision more than a month ago to put up the bust to depict Clinton's "dimension as a woman in politics, as a representative of the old Albania-U.S. friendship, for her contribution to the Albanian nation in different historical moments."

Albanian sculptor Idriz Balani and participants insisted that was not linked to the U.S. presidential process.

Saranda is a tourist town close to the ancient Roman archaeological spot of Butrint.
