‪Thank you to President Ghani, Chief Executive Abdullah, and their teams for in-depth discussions about the U.S.-Afghan partnership as well as the path forward towards stability for the Afghan people. ‬
A ship carrying 4 U.S.-funded cranes is on its way to #Yemen. The U.S. provided them to @WFP to improve delivery of critical supplies, including food & medicine. For nearly a year, the cranes have been stalled, but now the world can track their journey: http://bit.ly/2CWiYDb
"It’s easy for friends to be with you in the good times, but it’s the friends who are with you during the challenging times that will never be forgotten. Thank you to the 64."
"It takes great bravery for the Iranian people to use the power of their voice against their government, especially when that government has a long history of murdering its own people who dare to speak the truth... All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause."
Statement by Ambassador Haley on peaceful protests by the #Iranian people
The Security Council unanimously passed a US resolution further condemning North Korea by restricting oil, critical imports, and all remaining major exports— continuing to isolate Kim Jong Un and his rogue regime from the rest of the world. #15-0
“America will put our embassy in Jerusalem.  That is what the American people want us to do, and it is the right thing to do.  No vote in the United Nations will make any difference on that.  But this vote will make a difference on how Americans look at the UN, and on how we look at countries who disrespect us in the UN.”
"What we witnessed here today in the Security Council is an insult. It won’t be forgotten. It’s one more example of the United Nations doing more harm than good in addressing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict." -Ambassador Nikki Haley after vetoing a UNSC resolution on #Jerusalem: go.usa.gov/xnQMj
Ambassador Nikki Haley held a press conference at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C., today to unveil clear evidence of #Iran’s violations of #UN Security Council resolutions and highlight recent findings communicated in the UN Secretary-General’s Resolution 2231 Implementation Report. Following the press conference, media participated in a guided walkthrough of the evidence proving that Iran continues to defy the international community.
“The United States welcomes this report, as should every nation concerned about Iranian expansion. We are grateful for the depth of the UN’s inspection and analysis. Most telling, the report makes a convincing case that Iran is illegally providing the #Houthi militants in #Yemen with dangerous weapons. The report provides devastating evidence of missiles, conventional arms, and explosive boats of Iranian origin used by the rebels in Yemen – all of which violate UN resolutions. The United States and our partners went to great lengths to support the UN investigations into Iranian violations by declassifying evidence so that the world could better be informed of the extent of Iran’s malign activities.”
“As you know, we do not often declassify this type of military equipment recovered from these attacks. But today we are taking an extraordinary step of presenting it here in an open setting. We did this for a single, urgent purpose: because the Iranian regime cannot be allowed to engage in its lawless behavior any longer. International peace and security depends on us working together against the Iranian regime’s hostile actions.”
“The fight against #Iranian aggression is the world’s fight. The United States is acting today in the spirit of transparency and international cooperation that is necessary to defeat this threat… Just imagine if this missile had been launched at #Dulles Airport or #JFK, or the airports in #Paris, #London, or #Berlin. That’s what we’re talking about here. That’s what Iran is actively supporting.”
On #HumanRightsDay, the United States reaffirms its commitment to advancing the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all persons. #StandUp4HumanRights
