Last February, I announced that the United States would establish an embassy in Solomon Islands. Now, that pledge is a reality. The United States is a Pacific country, and we are taking another important step forward in helping deliver for our people and for the region we share.

On my trip to Israel and the West Bank, I had the opportunity to sit down with and listen to Israelis and Palestinians. They play a critical role in reminding us what’s truly important—trying to make sure that each of us is treated with the dignity that we each deserve.

Iranian Narges Mohammadi has been detained repeatedly since 1998, but that hasn’t stopped her advocacy. In 2022, she was sentenced to 74 lashes and 8 years on politically motivated “national security” charges, but still defends human rights from behind bars. #WithoutJustCause

Yesterday, I announced that the United States will provide an additional $41 million to meet humanitarian needs in Somalia. But I also made clear that we cannot do this alone. Others must bolster their humanitarian contributions and help save lives.
