"One of the many things that sets U.S. diplomacy apart is its diversity. There’s no doubt about it, we are the most diverse diplomatic corps in the world. To become a diplomat, an Ambassador, or even Secretary of State, you don’t need to study at a certain school or come from a particular background. Many people who represent America abroad are former lawyers, doctors, journalists, business executives, teachers, or come from a range of other professions. Some, like me, were born outside of the United States. This diversity of backgrounds and experiences makes us stronger and better equipped to respond to 21st century challenges." -Ambassador Daniel W. Yohannes

The United States strongly condemns today’s terrorist attack on Istanbul's Ataturk Airport. We extend our condolences to the families of the victims and our hopes for a quick recovery for the wounded. We will remain in close touch with Turkish authorities throughout the investigation.

We stand in solidarity with our NATO Ally Turkey in combating the threat of terrorism. Sadly, this murderous attack is only the latest in a series of attacks aimed at killing and maiming innocent civilians. Such attacks will only reinforce our determination to work with the Government of Turkey to counter the scourge of terrorism and support all those across the region who are working to promote peace and reconciliation.

At the North America Leader’s Summit President Obama will be joining the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau and the President of Mexico Enrique Peña Nieto in laying out a historic continental goal of 50 percent clean power generation by 2025. Meeting the goal will involve clean energy development and deployment (including renewable, nuclear, and carbon capture and storage technologies), clean energy innovation (through the Mission Innovation initiative), and improved energy efficiency. To support the goal of 50 percent clean power generation, the three countries plan a range of initiatives, including cutting power waste by aligning ten appliance efficiency standards or test procedures by 2019, 5,000 megawatts of cross-border transmission projects to facilitate deployment of clean power, a joint study of the opportunities and impacts of adding more renewables to the electric grid on a continental basis, and the greening of government operations to 100 percent clean energy by 2025: http://goo.gl/SRyAOb.
A new target for 50 percent clean energy generation across North America will help the environment, foster growing industries, and support hundreds of thousands of jobs.

+Jaylan Phoenix​, the "Target" is more of a deadline for antiquated power production providers to stop dragging their feet, install/upgrade to energy-efficient operation, instead of polluting for profit. Nice Red Herring though.

President Obama is in Ottawa, Canada today for the North American Leaders' Summit.

This Summit (NALS) presents an important opportunity for the U.S., Canada, and Mexico to meet together in recognition of the value of a more integrated North America in order to advance the security and prosperity of the entire continent. After all, North America is home to a community of over 500 million people who enjoy shared democratic values, vibrant economies, dynamic cultures, and cooperation on pressing global and regional issues. As consumers, the people of North America are and will continue to be an economic powerhouse on the global stage: http://goo.gl/ShCxSm.
Follow along as President Obama meets with Canada's Prime Minister Trudeau and Mexico's President Nieto in Ottawa, Canada.

US out of NAFTA or kick Mexico out of NAFTA and invite the UK into the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement.

Why are we subjected to this agreement when Mexico does not have the same standards of living as Canada and the US?

Last year mexican nationals living in the US illegally sent 25 Billion Dollars to Mexico. That same year California spent 22.5 Billion Dollars for services provided to illegal immigrants, money the state doesn't have. Mexico's #1 source of income wasn't it's petroleum industry or auto-manufactures it's remittances sent from the US!

Factories close here and move to Mexico and build the same product and sell them back to us for the same price or higher. If you pay lower wages then sell the products lower here in the US.

Meanwhile we have thousands upon thousands of illegal immigrants that work low paying jobs here in the US and still manage to send 25 Billion Dollars to Mexico. Let's not forget about the Cubans coming in from the South and the Africans stuck in Costa Rica making their way to the US.

So please, State Department tell me again how NAFTA benefits regular everyday folks here in the US.

Just a heads up I'm not a bigot I'm hispanic living L.A, CA and call it the way it is. Let me tell you who I'm not voting for, Hillary.

Born in Addis Ababa, #Ethiopia. Immigrated to the United States at the age of 17 with nothing but $150 in his pocket. Yet, he was driven by the idea that in America, anyone could succeed with hard work and perseverance. Now he's the U.S. Ambassador to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Listen to the inspiring story of Daniel Yohannes on Meet the Ambassador: https://goo.gl/mqYbz3.

First start by calling terrorists what they are. Violent, radical, Islamic extremists. They don't come from all backgrounds. It is ISIS for a reason. It is what they believe their religion tells them to do.
Gun control, yes please go and ask all the Islamic Terrorists for their guns, but I will keep mine because after they cut your head off I will need to defend myself.
Go offer them some jobs John Kerry you moron. That will work. Blame Islamic terrorism on climate change. Let's stop driving cars and using fossil fuels, that will stop them from blowing themselves up.

Aspen Ideas Festival, home for the mentally deficient.
