The arrival of the new US ambassador to Albania, David Kostelancik, appears today before the Senate, here are the details of his plan to eliminate corruption in Albania

The arrival of the new US ambassador to Albania, David Kostelancik, appears

The well-known diplomat, David J. Kostelancik, re-proposed by the American president, Joe Biden to the post of ambassador of the United States of America to Albania, is expected to appear today (April 16) before the Committee on Foreign Relations in the United States Senate. This is the second time that David J. Kostelancik will appear before this committee as proposed for the position of ambassador to our country. Earlier, he had passed the hearing before this Committee, but the vote in the US Senate together with 40 other proposed diplomats due to exceeding the procedural deadlines was not realized. David J. Kostelancik is expected to be reconfirmed by the Committee, to be presented for a vote later by the Senate. A career diplomat, Kostelan?ik once served in Albania during the years 1992-1994, as the first representative for political and economic affairs. If his candidacy is approved by the Senate, diplomat Kostelanchik will replace Yuri Kim, who left our country on June 25, 2023, taking an important post in the US State Department. The US Embassy is currently headed by Charge d'Affaires David Wisner.

Some of the advantages of David J. Kostelancik as the next US ambassador to Albania 

Meanwhile, we remember that David J. Kostelancik, appointed by President Biden to serve as United States Ambassador to Albania, presented a year ago before the Committee on Foreign Relations in the United States Senate, during the confirmation session, the priorities of him as ambassador. "If I am confirmed in this position, I will cooperate with Albania to strengthen democratic institutions and justice institutions. President Joe Biden has defined the fight against corruption and organized crime as part of our national strategy. This is a major challenge for the countries of the Western Balkans", said Mr. Kostelancik. The progress of the justice reform will help Albania's progress towards European integration, he emphasized. One of the sectors of close cooperation between the two countries, said the appointed ambassador, will be the further strengthening of the defense partnership. Iran's cyber attack on Albania in 2022, he said, showed the need for it to invest in infrastructure and training to build a sustainable cyber system. The United States, he said, has sent experts to Albania to repair the damage done and has offered 50 million dollars for this purpose. A third priority, he emphasized, will be strengthening the business climate. The interests of the United States, said the expected ambassador, are served through a transparent market in Albania.

Who is the famous Diplomat, David J. Kostelancik?

Mr. Kostelancik has served in Albania even before in the period 1992-1994, as the first representative for political and economic issues in the newly opened American embassy in Tirana. Prior to his appointment as ambassador, he served as Foreign Policy Advisor to the US Chief of Staff, General Mark Milley. Mr. Kostelancik is a diplomat with a 30-year career. He has served twice in the American Embassy in Moscow, in the US missions in OSCE and NATO, as well as in Ankara, Turkey. Diplomat Kostelancik, originally from the state of Illinois, graduated from the Northwestern University of this state. He speaks Russian, Hungarian, Albanian and Turkish. If his candidacy is approved by the Senate, diplomat Kostelancik will replace the current American ambassador to Albania, Yuri Kim.
