Rob Schmitz, Manhattan, Balkans discussed on Morning Edition

And now, he says, this is made easier with money from a rising superpower eager to wield its influence globally. Earlier this spring, Montenegrin Deputy Prime Minister Abbott Soviet told the press he was open to launching an investigation into alleged corruption among members of the previous government over the Chinese built highway. But that was before he stopped speaking to the international press before his government entered into talks with Beijing over how to repay the money it owes China and so far no such corruption investigation has been launched.
