On this 76th #UNDay, let's consider the potential of the @UN Charter to draw the world away from violence and towards peace. As we build back from the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. calls for a renewed commitment to multilateralism and the UN Charter's purposes and principles.

Had fun chatting with Diego Bahamón Serrato, one of Colombia’s most talented musicians, in Bogota yesterday. Learned more about the tiple (Colombia's national instrument) and enjoyed discussing how music and the arts unite us.

Our partnership with African countries is important--we can harness trade and investment to address the climate crisis, foster inclusive growth, and build an economic system for future generations. I appreciated participating in the African Growth and Opportunity Act Ministerial.

It was a pleasure visiting Ecuador this week. I was struck by the city of Quito's stunning beauty, and even more by the incredible opportunity the United States and Ecuador have to work together to strengthen democracy in the region and deliver for our people.

The Nicaraguan people seeking democracy and human rights can count on partners across the Americas. The U.S. joined the resounding majority @OAS_official vote condemning the Ortega-Murillo government’s antidemocratic actions, repression, and upcoming sham elections on November 7.

Remarkable to listen to young leaders in Colombia discuss the imperative of working together to tackle global challenges, including the climate crisis. It is imperative we listen to them and involve them in building a better future for all.

Colombia’s emission reduction targets are among the most ambitious in the hemisphere. We have a narrow moment to pursue action to protect our environment. Together we can make a difference for a healthier and more prosperous planet.

I spoke yesterday with @GuadalupeLlori. Public service is essential to democracy. I was heartened to hear her remarks on the importance of unity and reconciliation when she was elected as the National Assembly President in Ecuador.

There’s something important to be learned from Ecuador, Colombia, and the region in understanding the challenges facing democracies and how to overcome them. What our democracies can do to close the gap between what we promise and what we deliver depends on what we do together.
