Today, @StateDept released the 2021 International Religious Freedom Report. Respect for religious freedom isn’t only one of our deepest held values and a universal human right—it’s also a vital foreign policy priority. We must do more to combat rising forms of hate.

As we invest, align, and compete, we'll work together with Beijing where our interests overlap. We can’t let the disagreements that divide us stop us from moving forward on priorities that demand we work together for the good of our people and the world. That starts with climate.

Saddened to learn of the death of former Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki.  Sincere condolences to his family, friends, and the Kenyan people at this difficult time.
The Russian government’s disinformation is dangerous. What the Kremlin is doing in Ukraine is not a "limited military option," it is a ruthless, brutal, and deadly war. #StopTheLies and share the truth. You can start by sharing this website: stories.state.gov/what-is-a-spec…
