The United States ambassador to El Salvador, William Duncan, highlighted the support of Salvadorans regarding the public security measures that have been implemented in the country.
“I traveled a lot in El Salvador before, I talk to farmers in the fields, I have yet to meet anyone who is not happy with the current state of public security in the country, even with those people who have reservations about the way that is being done, they recognize that this has changed,” Duncan stressed during the inter-American dialogue.
The statements were made during his participation in The Inter-American Dialogue in the forum “United States and Central America: diplomacy and cooperation.”
Ambassador Duncan also highlighted that more than 50% of Salvadorans had not experienced the security of walking the streets without fear of being mugged, threatened or killed.
