Representatives from the United Nations, European Union, Arab League and Organization of Islamic Cooperation were also in attendance. However, neither Israel nor the Palestinians had any representation at the conference.

It is a universal language in our search for common ground, an expression of our shared humanity. That’s why Art in Embassies is so important.

But things started unraveling just hours after the compromise was inked. First, while State claims Chen never wanted to leave...

    THE US government will this year begin the construction of a new Embassy compound in Harare valued at $199 million. This comes after the Department of State Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations (OBO) awarded a tender to B.L. Harbert, International of Birmingham, Alabama for the construction work. The new Embassy will be located on a 16.5-acre site in the Bluff Hill area. The complex will include an office building and associated support facilities. US ambassador to Zimbabwe, Bruce Wharton, revealed this information in Harare recently. He told delegates at an embassy function that the decision was a sign of US...

    (VNRN) - Any new U.S. Ambassador will always attract the attention of Vietnamese everywhere, but when President Barack Obama nominated Asia pro Ted Osius, it generated a little more than the usual high interest. You see, Osius is openly gay. Regardless of whether the nominee’s sexual orientation was a factor, the nomination hopefully will usher in more LGBT rights in Vietnam. Certainly Osius is qualified to be ambassador. He has served as Deputy Chief of Mission before, in Indonesia from 2009 to 2012. For the past year, he has been an Associate Professor at the National War College. Osius had...

    Some of the men involved claim they were forced to participate by their supervisors at the ArmorGroup security firm. The scandal could yet again call into question the role of private contractors in US military missions...They show naked men, employees of the security firm, whose genitals are only barely covered with a kind of black beer mat. The men are drinking, dancing naked around a fire, licking each others nipples and grabbing each others testicles. They perform sex acts, pour vodka down each others' naked backs and drink it from the buttocks. It now appears that some of the men...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday that his chamber is unlikely to approve an American ambassador to Cuba, dishing out a quick rebuff to President Barack Obama and his drive to normalize relations with the U.S. neighbor and longtime Cold War foe. The Kentucky Republican also suggested that the GOP — which controls Congress — would fight Obama administration efforts to fully lift trade and travel restrictions that have limited American commerce and tourism with the communist-led island nation. McConnell said the country was led by "a thuggish regime." The comments by McConnell came a day after Obama and...

    Exemplar of the Obama administration – a US embassy hire, is ….. a terrorist. This is hardly the first time. Just like the “security force” the Obama administration hired to “protect” the consulate in Benghazi. They were savage jihadists, too. Now imagine this – the Obama administration is importing hundreds of thousands of Muslims –“refugees”– from this war torn region. If this is how the treasonous administration vets security personnel, what hope do Americans have that these “refugees’ have been properly vetted? None. On the contrary … “Security Guard at U.S. Embassy in Egypt Arrested as a Terrorist”, OODA Analyst,...

    JOHANNESBURG -- A lion killed an American woman and injured a man driving through a private wildlife park in Johannesburg on Monday, a park official said. The attack occurred at around 2:30 p.m. when a lioness approached the passenger side of the vehicle as the woman took photos and then lunged, said Scott Simpson, assistant operations manager at the Lion Park. "They had their windows all the way down, which is strictly against policy," he said. "The lion bit the lady through the window." The driver then tried to punch the lion and was scratched by the animal. Park staff...
