Deputy Secretary John J. Sullivan today co-hosted a public event on the margins of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly entitled “Stepping up Action to End Forced Labour, Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking,” proudly joining the governments of Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Bahrain, Canada, Nigeria, and the United Kingdom to affirm the importance of government action to combat human trafficking.

The Principles highlight the critical role of governments and acknowledge the necessity of strategic cooperation with civil society, survivors, and the business community.

Deputy Secretary Sullivan also announced additional U.S. funds to support the Department of State’s Program to End Modern Slavery (PEMS), bringing the Department’s total investment for this important program to $75 million. PEMS aims to support transformational programs and projects to achieve a measurable and substantial reduction of the prevalence of modern slavery in targeted populations in priority countries and regions.

Press Statement

Michael R. Pompeo

Secretary of State

Washington, DC

September 21, 2018


On behalf of the Government of the United States of America, I wish to convey my best wishes to the people of Malta on their 54th Independence Day.

Our ties of friendship span over 200 years dating back to America’s own War of Independence, during which over 1,000 Maltese enlisted in the French Navy to assist the American colonies in their quest for freedom. The Liberty Bell, cast by John Pace, a Maltese immigrant to the United States, forever serves as a reminder of our strong bond and shared history.

We look forward to maintaining and strengthening our partnership, particularly in the realms of peace, security, trade, and cooperation in the Mediterranean and beyond.

Press Statement

Michael R. Pompeo

Secretary of State

Washington, DC

September 20, 2018


On behalf of the government of the United States, it is my pleasure to congratulate the people of Armenia on the 27th anniversary of your historic vote to reclaim and restore your national independence. This year is especially important because it also represents the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the first Armenian state in modern history and the centennial celebration of U.S.-Armenian friendship.

This year brought remarkable changes to Armenia. The peaceful popular movement that transformed the government has ushered in an exciting new chapter of Armenian history. I look forward to working with the people and government of Armenia as you seek to build strong democratic institutions, tackle corruption, and boost economic growth.

The United States also remains committed to finding a peaceful resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and urges the parties to resume intensive negotiations as soon as possible.

We look forward to further strengthening our bonds in the coming year.
