U.S. Embassy Statement

We congratulate the Albanian State Police and partner law enforcement agencies for the arrest of international drug trafficker Klement Balili.  This marks a major step for the Albanian people on the path towards enforced rule of law, and serves as demonstrable progress towards opening EU accession talks.  We look forward to a swift and thorough investigation and trial.  The United States stands ready to assist Albania’s efforts for continued progress in the fight against organized crime. #WhosNext
