Baku/06.11.17/ Turan: The United States of America decided to follow the example of Azerbaijan and withdraw from the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI). This is reported by Bloomberg.
It should be noted that Azerbaijan left EITI in March this year.
"The US government remains committed to combating corruption in the extractive industries sector and the transparency ideals enshrined in the principles of EITI," said Gregory Gold, spokesman for the US Department of the Interior. However, as he noted, EITI does not fully take into account the legal framework of the United States. -0-
