Ambassador Yuri Kim speaks tonight on "VOA" about political developments, her first message is revealed

The US Ambassador in Tirana, Yuri Kim, will give an interview tonight for "Voice of America", where she is expected to talk about political developments in Albania.
In a Facebook post, the US embassy reveals a message from Ambassador Kim, who dwells on diplomacy, saying that it is about more than just government to government.
According to Ambassador Kim, diplomats have much more work to do than government officials, stressing that "when I say business, I talk about relationships with the rest of Albania.

""So, my first job, my first priority is to ensure that our governments have a good working relationship. But beyond that, diplomacy is about more than just government to government, it also involves people to people, and it involves businesses as well. And so that’s why you see me and other diplomats traveling around the country, because we have business here in Tirana with government officials, but we have much more business – and when I say business, I’m talking about relationships – with the rest of Albania.” Tune in on Voice of America tonight, at 18:00, to watch U.S. Ambassador Yuri Kim's interview with Armand Mero," writes the embassy.
