    U.S. Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo Approves New Cyberspace Security and Emerging Technologies Bureau | site |




    (Information contained in U.S. Department of State's Office of the Spokesperson press release media note dated: January 7, 2021) Secretary Pompeo has approved the creation of the Bureau of Cyberspace Security and Emerging Technologies (CSET) and has directed the Department to move forward with standing up the bureau.

Pompeo Earlier this month, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, in comments at the MED Dialogue, accused the United States of playing political games in the Mediterranean and stalling the appointment of a new UN Special Representative of the Secretary-General in Libya.  It’s unfortunate and unhelpful that Mr. Lavrov again gets the facts wrong and attempts to rewrite history. The United States is working actively with allies and partners in the Eastern Mediterranean to promote greater stability, security, and prosperity.

This agreement will also grant overflights and direct flights to and from Israel and will promote unfettered economic cooperation between Israeli and Moroccan companies. This significant step is the result of the hard, diplomatic work of many who have devoted their time and expertise to achieving an outcome that benefits both parties.
