In 2022, one in five girls will be married before reaching age 18 and one in three women will experience sexual or physical violence in their lifetimes. The international community must do much more to eliminate gender-based violence.
On the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, the U.S. stands in solidarity with the brave women and girls, both domestically and around the globe, who fight to live a life free from the destructive threat of violence. usun.usmission.gov/statement…

From my family to yours – Happy Thanksgiving. Today, I’m thinking about my @StateDept colleagues and the U.S. service members who are serving abroad and away from their families. We owe them a tremendous debt of gratitude.

As we honor the sacred memories of the victims of the Holodomor, the United States also reaffirms our commitment to ensuring that the atrocities being carried out by Russian forces in Ukraine are not forgotten – and that those responsible for them are held to account.

No matter the cold and dark that Putin tries to inflict, Ukraine will continue to defend its freedom, its sovereignty, and its democracy. And the United States and our allies will continue to stand with Ukraine in its time of need – for as long as it takes. #UnitedWithUkraine

Putin has decided that if he can’t seize Ukraine by force, he can freeze the country into submission by destroying its energy infrastructure. But he is, once again, gravely mistaken. The Ukrainian people will not be deterred. cnbc.com/2022/11/23/russia-u…

The @UN Security Council must take action in response to North Korea’s threatening and escalatory behavior. This moment demands unity.

We remain committed to supporting active peace efforts in Yemen. Today, the Houthis are faced with the choice to foster peace and prosperity – or continue a pointless cycle of violence that has destroyed so many lives.

We send our deepest condolences to the people of Indonesia, especially the loved ones of those killed and the injured. Indonesia is a strong partner at the UN and in the region. Our thoughts are with all those affected by this devastating disaster.
We are deeply saddened by the devastating earthquake in West Java. We stand with the people of Indonesia and send our heartfelt condolences to the affected communities during this difficult time.

An incredible honor for an incredible humanitarian. The work that @WCKitchen does to feed those in need in Ukraine – and around the world – is nothing short of heroic.
Thousands of Ukrainians have helped WCK serve nearly 180 million meals since February. Today, WCK’s @chefjoseandres was awarded the Order of Merit from President @ZelenskyyUa. This is a huge honor & our team is humbled to work side by side with Ukrainians to feed Ukrainians. 🇺🇦

Great to visit the @SmithsonianNMAI during #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth. Their collection powerfully tells the rich and diverse stories of Native cultures. Next time you’re in New York City, be sure to stop by.

Stood with colleagues from 🇦🇱🇦🇺🇪🇨🇫🇷🇮🇪🇮🇳🇯🇵🇲🇹🇳🇴🇰🇷🇨🇭🇦🇪🇬🇧 to strongly condemn North Korea’s most recent ICBM launch. The UNSC must speak out against North Korea's actions with a unified voice – and take action to address these unequivocal threats to international peace and security.

The power of the @UN is its ability to bring the world together to address our most pressing global challenges – including the climate crisis. During #COP27, we took important steps forward to keep the goal of limiting warming to 1.5 degrees within reach.

For too long, North Korea has acted with impunity. It has conducted escalatory, destabilizing ballistic missile launches in violation of Security Council resolutions without fear of a response or reprisal. Why? Two members of the Council are enabling and emboldening North Korea.

My heart breaks for the victims’ loved ones and for the LGBTQI+ community. We must stamp out all forms of hate.
Jill and I are praying for the families of the five people killed in Colorado Springs, and for those injured in this senseless attack. While no motive in this attack is yet clear, we know that gun violence has a particular impact on LGBTQI+ communities across our nation.

The DPRK's latest ballistic missile launch is yet another example of its increasingly reckless and destabilizing actions – and blatant violation of UN Security Council resolutions. UNSC members must speak up against this appalling behavior.
The U.S., with its allies and partners, have called for a UNSC meeting for November 21 to address the DPRK's brazen launch of an ICBM. We urge the UNSC to take its responsibility seriously and unite in condemning this dangerous and unlawful behavior. usun.usmission.gov/statement…

It is unconscionable that Russia, a UNSC P5 member, continues its horrific filtration operation. Forced transfer or deportation of protected persons from occupied territories to the territory of the occupier constitutes a war crime. We are committed to ensuring accountability.
Russia must halt detentions and disappearances, withdraw its forces from Ukraine, and end a war that it cannot and will not win – no matter how brutal its tactics. A new #ConflictObservatory report documents additional allegations of Russia’s abuses. state.gov/accountability-for…

The question before the @UN is whether we will defend an outdated status quo or reform the Security Council to take on the challenges of the 21st century. The United States believes, to our core, that we must move forward and make desperately needed reforms.
