To the people of South and North Korea, and Koreans across the globe, I wish you the best on this Chuseok holiday. In this time of thanksgiving, I reflect upon the importance of the U.S.-Republic of Korea Alliance, based on our shared values and close friendships.

We are deeply saddened by the passing of His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah and offer our sincere condolences. His humanitarianism and global leadership shaped Kuwait into a prosperous modern state. He has been central to building peace and prosperity in the Gulf region.

Departing Greece today, gratified by the extraordinary progress we’ve made in U.S.-Greece relations since my visit last year. I welcome Greece’s role as a pillar of stability in the region.

Back in my ancestral homeland of Italy. The United States and Italy have a long-standing history of friendship based on our shared values of democracy, freedom, and prosperity.

Today, the U.S. sanctioned 17 of Assad’s corrupt military, government, and business leaders, as well as firms profiting from the Syrian conflict. Their actions victimize the Syrian people and needlessly prolong their suffering. UNSCR 2254 is the only path forward.

Today, the U.S. added Luis Alberto Rodríguez López-Calleja to the SDN List. He heads GAESA, a Cuban military-owned conglomerate that helps fund the regime’s oppression in Cuba and interference in Venezuela. This action will reduce the regime's capacity to repress its own people.

We're offering up to $5 million each for information leading to the arrests and/or convictions of two indicted former Venezuelan public officials. We are working with @TheJusticeDept  to protect U.S. citizens and to help Venezuelans restore their democracy.


Today, the @realDonaldTrump  Administration continues to move forward with the United States' withdrawal from the @WHO.  The WHO failed to adopt urgently needed reforms, starting with demonstrating its independence from the Chinese Communist Party.

Democracy, respect for fundamental freedoms, and government accountability to the people are the best paths to stability in Hong Kong - not draconian efforts to limit free expression, delay elections, and restrict travel.

The world needs to unite around the central idea that the Islamic Republic of Iran is the greatest threat, and when that regime changes its behavior, we have the chance to create true global stability in the region. It’s what President@realDonaldTrump  asked us to do.

The Iranian regime’s execution of Navid Afkari is a vicious and cruel act. We condemn it in the strongest terms. It is an outrageous assault on human dignity, even by the despicable standards of this regime. The voices of the Iranian people will not be silenced. #نویدمان_را_کشتند 

We welcome the UK, Germany, and France's rejection of China's unlawful maritime claims in the South China Sea at the United Nations. China must abide by international norms. We join our allies in rejecting the idea that "might makes right.
