We were so inspired to meet Jaha Dukureh, a courageous woman who has fought against female genital mutilation and child marriages across the world. She was recently nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. A woman truly changing the world. #StrongWomenMakeADifference
Ambassador Nikki Haley, spoke this afternoon at an emergency UN Security Council briefing on #chemicalweapons use by #Russia in the #UnitedKingdom.
"Let me make one thing clear from the very beginning: the United States stands in absolute solidarity with Great Britain. The United States believes that Russia is responsible for the attack on two people in the United Kingdom using a military-grade nerve agent."
"The Russians complained recently that we criticize them too much. If the Russian government stopped using chemical weapons to assassinate its enemies; and if the Russian government stopped helping its Syrian ally to use chemical weapons to kill Syrian children; and if Russia cooperated with the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons by turning over all information related to this nerve agent, we would stop talking about them. We take no pleasure in having to constantly criticize Russia, but we need Russia to stop giving us so many reasons to do so."
"This is a defining moment. Time and time again, Member States say they oppose the use of chemical weapons under any circumstance. Now, one member stands accused of using chemical weapons on the sovereign soil of another member. The credibility of this Council will not survive if we fail to hold Russia accountable."

Great briefings with National Security Advisor McMaster, the Secretary General, the Security Council and our Japanese and Korean allies. We discussed how important it is for the international community to keep up the pressure and enforce UN resolutions on North Korea.
“The Russian and Syrian regimes label anyone as terrorists who resist their absolute control. In the eyes of Russia, Iran, and Assad, the neighborhoods of eastern Ghouta are full of ‘terrorists.’ The hospitals are full of ‘terrorists.’ The schools are full of ‘terrorists.’”
We were pleased to welcome Prime Minister Netanyahu to New York City. We had a great discussion on the peace deal, Syria, Iran and challenges at the UN.
@marcorubiofla and I had the pleasure of meeting @rosamariapaya who is bravely and courageously fighting for the voice of the Cuban people.
Together in a collaboration between the Guatemalan Special Forces and US Military we were able to increase drug interdictions in Guatemala last year by 58 percent— stopping drugs that could have ended up in the US. A safe and secure Guatemala means a safe and secure US.
In Guatemala we met these brave survivors at the El Refugio Shelter who have fought to overcome human trafficking and abuse to work toward a bright future. So proud of these strong girls!
We had a good discussion with CICIG about its important anti-corruption work, and how it can work with the government for the good of the Guatemalan people.
It was an honor to meet with Archbishop Thevenin and Father Colmenares to understand what everyday life is like in Guatemala, talk about human rights, and pay our respects to Archbishop Vian.
We had a great meeting with President Morales discussing our work together fighting drugs, corruption, and gangs in the region, as well as the crisis in Venezuela. We are thankful to the Guatemalan people for their friendship.
