The Committee on Foreign Affairs of the American Senate approves the "iron" law that will cause "earthquakes" in Albania, as all "non-women" persons and politicians and officials involved in corrupt affairs will be "brought to their knees" by justice. Brussels also comes into play

The Committee on Foreign Affairs of the American Senate approves the

In recent days, the United States of America has sent another message to corrupt officials and those declared "non grata" who live and carry out corrupt activities in the Western Balkans. During this time, the newspaper "SOT" has shown and reflected episodes of how the Americans are determined to eradicate corruption in Albania and the region, while the first serious step has been taken recently, as the law has already started to kneel for persons "non grata" ” and any politician and official involved in corrupt affairs. It is known that the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the US Senate approved last week an inter-party draft law, which aims at greater engagement of the United States in the Western Balkans. According to the law that was initiated by the Democratic Senator, Jeanne Shaheen, and the Republican Roger Wicker, it is intended that the Balkan states be supported in the economic aspect and in the fight against corruption and destabilizing activities. One of the drafters of the bill, Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen, told VOA that the United States, clearly, will not tolerate attempts to undermine peace and stability in the region. "I wrote this bill focusing on the opportunity to deepen our commitment and investment in the region, through strengthening trade relations and economic cooperation, and to highlight the tools the US has to respond to the impact malfeasance, corruption and other efforts aimed at undermining the region's democratic aspirations," said Shaheen.

Joseph's message

Edward P. Joseph, a lecturer at Johns Hopkins University in the US, tells Radio Free Europe's Expose program that American senators are concerned about the region, which, after the Russian invasion of Ukraine, "is even more important, but even less sustainable". "This is the reason why the most important elements in the bill are economic. "Codifying the authority of sanctions against those who threaten stability and engage in corrupt behavior sends a strong signal," says Joseph. The law, among other things, attaches importance to the dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia and emphasizes that the two countries should aim to immediately implement the obligations arising from the Ohrid Agreement for the normalization of relations. "When sufficient progress has been made in implementing the agreement, the United States should consider promoting initiatives to strengthen bilateral relations with both countries," the bill states. Part of it also talks about the instability in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as a result of the secessionist rhetoric of the Serbian leader, Milorad Dodik. The parliamentary and local elections in Serbia, held last December, as well as the irregularities evident in these processes, are also singled out, estimating that they "cause deep concern for the state of democracy" in this country.

How will law enforcement institutions be strengthened?

The bill calls for all of these issues to be addressed and urges the US to assist the Western Balkans countries, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia in improving the functioning of the rule of law. and in making reforms. Charles Kupchan, former director of European affairs at the US National Security Council, tells Expose that the new bill comes at a time of "increased anxiety in the US" about the security situation in the Western Balkans. "It is a package that aims to increase the economic ties with the region, but also the levers of the USA in pursuing those who cause trouble in the Balkans", according to him.

Connection with Russia

The new American law, in addition to warnings about Russia's influence in the Balkans, also draws attention to "China's growing influence". But, apparently, this perception is broader than that. A poll by the International Republican Institute in the US, released last week, singled out Serbia as the biggest risk for half of the citizens of the Western Balkans. In testimony earlier in the day before the US Senate Armed Services Committee, NATO's supreme commander for Europe, General Christopher Cavoli, blamed Russia for fueling inter-ethnic tensions in the Balkans and said Serbia was suspected of being involved in these influence operations. He said that he has already authorized the sending of more NATO troops to Kosovo and Bosnia and Herzegovina. "We have done a review of the plan and it has shown that we need not only more forces in the region, but also heavier NATO artillery. The troops in Bosnia and Herzegovina and those in Kosovo must be reinforced for surveillance, detection and threat monitoring," said Cavoli. In an article published earlier this month in Bloomberg, former commander of NATO's allied forces for Europe, James Stavridis, wrote that, in addition to additional stabilizing forces in the region, NATO must also consider the so-called war Russian hybrids. "Putin is good at using social media, disinformation campaigns and pro-Russian propaganda to create tensions outside his borders. "NATO must use its information networks to expose and counter these false narratives," said Stavridis. In this spirit, the speaker of the US House of Representatives, Mike Johnson, speaking last week in support of aid to Ukraine, said that if Putin is allowed, he will continue to march through Europe. "I think it can also go to the Balkans," said Johnson.

How will Brussels come into play?

It is also said that this movement by the USA for "non gratats" in Tirana will have close coordination with partners in the EU, the United Kingdom and other allies in terms of imposing sanctions on persons and entities in this region, which do not adhere to democratic values. So the European Union comes into play, which, unlike America and Britain, has not imposed sanctions on corrupt high officials. So, after the United States of America as well as Britain and the European Union, a "black list" is expected to crack for high-ranking officials who try to destabilize the country.
