Seventy-six years after World War II, the U.S. and Germany are launching a high-level dialogue on Holocaust issues to discuss global action to combat anti-Semitism and counter Holocaust distortion. We proudly stand together and condemn all forms of anti-Semitism. https://t.co/tuG9PSoA3J

Proud to speak at @UN_HRC’s event on human rights of transgender women & other gender-diverse individuals.

I welcome the UK's and EU's sanctions on Burmese individuals and entities. The international community's unified message is clear: we will continue promoting accountability for the regime to support the aspirations of the Burmese people.
.@StateDept and @USTreasury joined @CanadaFP, @eu_eeas, and @FCDOGovUK to promote accountability for the Lukashenka regime’s egregious abuses, including a forced flight diversion to arrest a journalist, nearly 500 political prisoners, repression, and violence.
Looking forward to co-hosting the Global @Coalition to Defeat ISIS Ministerial Meeting with Italian Foreign Minister @luigidimaio on June 28. Through the Coalition, we're adapting and strengthening our efforts to achieve the enduring defeat of ISIS’s global networks.
Reflecting this #WorldRefugeeDay on Amb. William Swing’s 55+ years of public service – leaving an indelible mark on U.S. ties with the international humanitarian community’s work to help the world’s most vulnerable people as @UNMigration Director General & 6-time U.S. Ambassador. https://t.co/bI9HuUHmpW
As we mark #WorldRefugeeDay, I am reminded of my family’s own history fleeing violence, conflict, and persecution. My great-grandfather fled pogroms in Eastern Europe, my stepmother fled Communism, and my late stepfather survived the Holocaust. I stand #withrefugees. https://t.co/8qgCBk29rT
On #WorldRefugeeDay, we recognize the courage and resilience of millions of refugees forced to flee their homes. We answer the call to action with humanitarian assistance, diplomacy, and efforts to rebuild our capacity to welcome refugees through resettlement. #WithRefugeeshttps://t.co/Ec2Uj8D4i5
On this International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict, the U.S. reaffirms our longstanding commitment to the prevention of, and accountability for conflict-related sexual violence, and empowerment of survivors. The cost of inaction is too high to bear.
