The Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, assessed in Lisbon that "women are champions in the fight against corruption", which translates into "strengthening democracy". At the same time, she drew attention to the current situation of women in Afghanistan.

"Women are great advocates of the fight against corruption wherever it takes place, and the fight against corruption strengthens democracy," she said in a speech at the 67th session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Lisbon, after receiving the prize of 'Women for Peace and Security”  awarded for the first time.

In her opinion, the face of American security should be more about women, more people of color.

"This is not about mere representation, it's about leadership. We truly do believe that when women succeed, America succeeds," Pelosi stressed.

She also drew attention to the twentieth anniversary of the terror attacks on September 11, 2001.

“We hold dear the memories of the 3,000 beautiful souls who perished in the attacks, and the families who have endured unimaginable pain, as well as honor all the heroes and survivors, she wrote on Twitter.
