American Vice president Joe Biden in the joint conference with Kosovo President Hashim Thaçi asked from the political parties and the society to fight corruption and organized crime. “Corruption is the society cancer and hinders Kosovo development. Corruption is cancer, this is not exaggeration. Any country that faces corruption has not made progress. The progress will be impossible, unless you deal with corruption. I hope you will have a strong, democratic Kosovo, free of corruption.”

Biden added: “The government must fight the impunity and must punish the accused officials.” He also said that violence use is not tolerable in a democratic society. /balkaneu.com/
