U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said at a press briefing in Washington Jan. 7, Censor.NET reports citing the U.S. Department of State.
" The United States is today more deeply engaged in more parts of the world on more consequential issues than ever before in history all at one time," U.S. Secretary of State said. Explaining the reasons for this trend, Kerry noted that the U.S interests, friends, and allies demanded, welcomed, and wanted it.
" We therefore anticipate additional opportunities and challenges in the months to come in such places as Ukraine, Afghanistan, Central America, Colombia, Cyprus, Libya, South Sudan, Burundi, and the list goes on, " Kerry said.
He noted that Washington had no illusion about the difficulties. Kerry also expressed confidence that the U.S. had earned strong international support because the values brought by the U.S. to the table reflected those of the American people and they would be kept over the course of these challenges.
