US Ambassador Yuri Kim writes that corruption harms the foreign policy, national security and economic health of the US and its partners and allies.
For this reason, writes Kim, the US is committed to seeking accountability and fighting impunity for those involved in corruption.
Yuri Kim made this statement while distributing the statement of the Secretary of State, Antony Blinken on the Executive Order of the American President, Joe Biden, which includes Albania for freezing assets for officials and former corrupt officials who contribute to the destabilization of the Western Balkans.
"Corruption everywhere directly damages the foreign policy, national security and economic health of the United States and our partners and allies. This is why we are committed to promoting accountability and combating impunity for those involved in significant corruption, “writes Kim.
