State Department announces lead anti-corruption official

The State Department on Tuesday tapped nuclear arms and sanctions knowledgeable Richard Nephew as its new coordinator combating corruption on the worldwide stage.

The announcement, launched through an announcement from Secretary of State Antony Blinken to mark world anti-corruption day, serves to “elevate the fight against corruption across all aspects of U.S. diplomacy and foreign assistance.”

“Creating and filling this position demonstrates the importance the United States places on anti-corruption as a core national security interest and reiterates the central role global partnerships play in this fight,” Blinken stated.
