    Press Statement
    Ned Price, Department Spokesperson, U.S. Department of State


    On January 20, President Biden signed Proclamation 10141, “Ending Discriminatory Bans on Entry to the United States.” President Biden has made clear that the now-rescinded Proclamations 9645 and 9983 were a stain on our national conscience, contravened our values, jeopardized our alliances and partnerships, separated loved ones, and undermined our national security. Applicants from the affected countries may no longer be denied on the basis of nationality, and the Department has taken a number of steps to ensure that applicants previously refused visas under Proclamations 9645 and 9983 will not have future visa applic...

  • U.S. Department of Labor awards 8M Dollars to support enhanced Tracing of Goods made with Child, forced Labor and other exploitative practices in three Countries

    U.S. Department of Labor awards $8M to support enhanced Tracing of Goods made with Child, forced Labor and other exploitative practices in three Countries | site |



    Projects will focus on India, Pakistan and Democratic Republic of the Congo



    (Information contained in U.S. Department of Labor press release dated: February 9, 2021)

    Washington, DC - - Detecting child labor and forced labor in complex supply chains can be a daunting challenge. Fragmented and dispersed global-sourcing operations sometimes makes supply chains opaque, and research shows the risk of exploitative labor practices increases greatly in activities such as extraction of raw material and agricultural work, as they support other industries.

    The U.S. Department of Labor announced today two $4 million awards for cooperative agreements to Verité Inc. and ELEVATE Limited to implement technical assistance projects to increase the downstream tracing

    U.S. Department of Labor awards $8M in Grants to engage Cocoa Cooperatives to combat Child Labor in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana | site |



    (Information contained in U.S. Department of Labor press release dated: February 9, 2021)

    Washington, DC - - Under a hot sun, a child wields a machete at work in the fields, forced to inhale pesticides sprayed by adults eager to maintain their cocoa crop. Sadly, it is a reality for too many children, particularly those at work in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana’s cocoa industries.

    A recent report by NORC, an independent research organization affiliated with the University of Chicago, shows that child labor in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana’s cocoa-producing regions remains a significant problem. The U.S. Department of Labor funded the report.

    In response, the department has announced the awards of two $4 million grants for cooperative agreements to Save the Children and Winrock International to implement

  • U.S. Department of Labor awards 4.5M Dollars in Grants to reduce Child Labor in Madagascar's Mica-producing Communities

    U.S. Department of Labor awards $4.5M in Grants to reduce Child Labor in Madagascar's Mica-producing Communities | site |



    (Information contained in U.S. Department of Labor press release dated: February 9, 2021) Washington, DC - - A boy toils long hours lugging mica from deep underground mines to the surface above and then sorts and processes the mineral. With no protection from razor sharp tools, the child’s work exposes him fully to the mica and sand dust kicked up in the mining and sorting processes. At the end of the supply chain, the mined and processed mica finds its way into the manufacture of many consumer products such as automobiles, cosmetics and electronics. To help reduce child labor in Madagascar, one of the leading suppliers of mica where an estimated 10,000 children work in the mines, the U.S. Department of Labor today announced the award of a $4.5 million cooperative agreement to the United Nations Development Programme. The award w...

    The United States Condemns Attack on Saudi Arabia | site |



    (Information contained in U.S. Department of State press release dated: January 24, 2021


    January 24, 2021
    Press statement
    Ned Price, Department Spokesperson, U.S. Department of State

    The United States strongly condemns the latest attack on Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. We are gathering more information, but it appears to have been an attempt to target civilians. Such attacks contravene international law and undermine all efforts to promote peace and stability. As we work to de-escalate tensions in the region through principled diplomacy, including by bringing an end to the war in Yemen, we will also help our partner Saudi Arabia defend against attacks on its territory and hold those who attempt to undermine stability to account.
