Thank you to the Foreign Service Fellowship, the Christian Embassy, and the host committee for sponsoring a wonderful International Prayer Breakfast to kick off UNGA. We are all going to need prayers going into High Level Week! #greatstart #InternationalPrayerBreakfast
We have heard this same song from Russia many times before. Lying, cheating, and rogue behavior have become the new norm of the Russian culture. Russia needs to join the rest of the international community and support Security Council sanctions on North Korea.
This week, UN experts submitted a report to the Security Council on North Korea sanctions violations.  In a blow to the report’s credibility, Russia intervened to change the report to remove mentions of Russia’s own violations of sanctions on North Korea.
We had a great time hosting and celebrating the 44 women ambassadors at the UN...southern style! I’m so thankful for these sisters of mine for their strength, professionalism, and friendship. #CelebratingWomen 🇺🇸
‪If you missed our interview with @BretBaier, please tune in here: bit.ly/2p3Umjy‬
We’ll join @bretbaier tonight to talk about U.S. leadership at the UN and the threat caused by bad actors like Nicaragua and Venezuela in the Western Hemisphere. Tune in at 6pm on @foxnews.
‪Peacekeepers have one of the UN’s hardest jobs — protecting the world’s most vulnerable people in conflict. Their good work is overshadowed when some abuse their power. The U.S. has introduced a resolution to improve performance and hold abusers accountable.🇺🇸
“We consider any assault on Idlib to be a reckless escalation of the conflict. If Assad, Russia, and Iran continue down the path they are on, the consequences will be dire. The world will hold them responsible.”
17 years later it still hurts. On that day and the days that followed we saw strength, courage, sacrifice, and love. It is a reminder of why we fight for and defend our country so passionately. For our brothers and sisters that we lost that day, we will never forget. 🇺🇸 #GodBlessAmerica
‪Today we held a meeting on Venezuela— a case study in government corruption. Once a wealthy country, today the Maduro regime steals food from its people, deprives them of medical supplies and profits off their misfortune. We won’t stop getting loud for the people of Venezuela. ‬
‪“The fact is, corrupt regimes cannot be ignored, wished away, dealt with quietly or with whispers. If the Security Council is going to deliver on its commitment to peace and security, corruption must be addressed.”‬
