The court gave the DP seal to Berisha, the US Embassy reacts

The Embassy of the United States of America reacted after the Court of Appeal decided to give the seal of the Democratic Party to former Prime Minister Sali Berisha.

The US Embassy has stated to the media that their position remains unchanged and they add that they will not cooperate with persons declared 'non grata'.

Reaction of the US Embassy:

Our position regarding non-grata designated individuals remains unchanged: we do not engage with persons designated under US sanctions authority, and everyone should carefully consider how they work with US designated individuals.

Our engagements with political actors will be strongly based on the commitment we share to Albania's Euro-Atlantic future, including the rule of law and the fight against corruption.

As President Biden has repeatedly noted, the fight against corruption is a matter of national security for the United States.
