A team of US government officials from the US State Department, National Science Foundation, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the United States Coast Guard concluded a five-day inspection of foreign supervision research stations equipment installations in Antarctica, Before 11 February 2020. The team inspected three stations Mario Zucchelmi (Italy), Jung Bogo (South Korea), and The Expressive Island (China) by the Coast Guard Polar Star. It was the fifteenth inspection of foreign research stations by the United States in Antarctica, and the first since 2012. The United States praised the assistance provided by professionals at the inspection sites. The United States continues to promote the status of Antarctica as a continent reserved for peace and science in accordance with the provisions of the 1959 Antarctic Treaty. The purpose of the inspection was to verify compliance with the Antarctic Treaty and its environmental protocols, including provisions military prohibition Measures and mining, as well as provisions promoting safe station operations and sound environmental practices. The inspections assert that all of Antarctica's territorial claims are accessible to interested countries and reinforce the importance of compliance with the arms control provisions of the Antarctic Treaty. The United States will present its report on oversight in May 2020 at the next Antarctic Treaty Consultation Meeting in Helsinki, Finland. US Department of State, Bureau of Ocean and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs leads US policy on Antarctica in collaboration with National Science Foundation Is a federal agency that administers the US Antarctic Program (USAP), Which provides logistic support for all US government Research on the Southern Continent and the Southern Ocean and other federal agencies. Through united states Antarctic Program USAP, the United States maintains three-year-round scientific stations over Antarctica and has deployed more personnel in Antarctica than any other country.

U.S. Department of State and FBI Launch First Overseas Joint Terrorism Task Force With Kenya 

The United States Department of State and Federal Investigations has partnered together to assist Kenya in forming the first Overseas Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) to be located outside the United States. The Kenyan and United States led JTTF will be a multi-agency counter-terrorism investigation force in Nairobi, Kenya. The initiative to establish the Kenyan Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF-K) on January 16, 2019, at the Dusitad 2 Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya, after Al-Shabaab Started the terrorist attack. The JTTF required a pressure that could be met through which the FBI's training expertise combined with the State Department Bureau of Counterterrorism (CT Bureau) capacity-building efforts. 42 selected Kenyan investigators to the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia Will receive 12 weeks of intensive counter-notification training. The FBI will implement the curriculum and provide training with assistance from other agencies, as applicable. The FBI and the CT Bureau will collaborate and assess the program. The team will adopt the practices used by the U.S.-based JTTF and trained to handle sensitive counter-terrorism intelligence shared with the Kenyan government. Investigators will be trained and equipped to investigate all terrorism cases of critical importance in Kenya's National Security Council. Upon completion of the course, JTTF-K officials will return to Kenya, where they will be assisted by FBI Special Trainer Mentor. Investigations by JTTF-K will be conducted in accordance with international law enforcement standards and compliance with human rights. Legal authorities will be drawn from the Kenyan Constitution and international treaties. The JTTF Cases will be transferred to Kenya's courts for prosecute, which promote the US goal of enabling foreign partners to successfully counter terrorist threats. JTTF-K to build partner law enforcement capacity of counter-terrorism The State Government's Bureau of Counterterrorism, under the Anti-Terrorism Participation Fund set up by the Congress. Appropriate fund is provided for broader program with Kenya to promote terrorism investigation and prosecution, enhance crisis response, and strengthen border security.

United States Face The Waste Plastic Pollution Waste Management Program

United States Plastic Pollution Waste Management Program

United States Face The Waste Program

Plastic waste cause of marine debris is an emerging challenge, that will require more collaboration between the United states government and scientists and researchers around the world. the issue of plastic waste or marine debris data figures are shocking. the 70% of municipalities in developing countries do not have access to waste management. If we do not work, by 2050 the sea may contain more plastic than fish. In fact, the World Bank estimates That in low-income countries, more than 90% of the population lacks access to appropriate waste management. according to the United Nations Environment Program, 300 million tons of plastics is produced in the world and About eight million tonnes of plastic per year end up in the seas. For a long time, we have seen mismanagement of waste management. But doing it correctly is expensive. In developing countries it can cost 20 to 50% of the municipal budget to manage waste properly. So many communities do not have the capacity or resources to deal with this problem. Local waste solutions in the United States are often not transferable to the circumstances facing a less developed country. This highlights the need for localized innovation, and what responses work in further research, and how they can be transferable. I believe the American scientific community is ready to help, improved public policy to more viable economic models for recycling and materials engineering. When you are ready, the State Department door is to help you take these solutions to the world. Meanwhile, the White House has addressed this issue. Took keen interest in In the last six months it has called on senior inter-leadership to develop an action plan to address the issue, and it is even more urgent as plastics are one of the fastest growing manufacturing industries in the United States, between 2017 And 2018 growing at 6.9%. And when you take into account its supply chain, it represents 1.81 million jobs and $ 590.6 billion in production. The solution to this problem is important for the US economy as well as the environment. This year, as part of our initial efforts, the United States Government will issue a framework to address ocean plastic pollution. Drawing from successful experiences and lessons in the United States, we will address this challenge internationally through a combination of capacity building, market-based approaches and support for innovation. In 2019, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Clean Cities, Blue Ocean's Initiative, to Build Capacity and Commitment for 3R. Its $ 48 Million Global programs, reduced, reused and recycled and improved solid waste management. Countries that are major contributors to sea plastic pollution. This assistance complements USAID's partnership with the private sector to address the problem, such as with a $ 100 million fund from Circle Capital that will catalyze investment in the recycling value chain in Asia.

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

There are several programs to address plastic waste nearby. EPA's WasteWise program encourages local governments, non-profit organizations, businesses, and multinational corporations to achieve sustainability in their waste practices and reduce waste. And, the EPA's Trash-Free Waters Program catalyzes action by bringing stakeholders together to identify and prioritize new low cost, low tech projects, that have a major impact on land based sources of mismanaged waste. The Department of Foreign Affairs contributed $ 800k to APEC for efforts to combat marine debris in APEC areas, and a roadmap on marine debris. the department provided a $ 1 million grant for ocean conservation for a project in Vietnam to address the problem. We are looking to demonstrate our waste management successes as a potential model for the region. We are also partnering together. Twenty-five years ago, Taiwan was named "Garbage Island", through extensive solid waste management policy and public awareness efforts, Taiwan now has recycling rates at more than 50% according to some estimates, We want to replicate this success with others in the region. We are also engaged on the UNEP Ad Hoc Open-ended Expert Group to take stock of existing activities to combat marine waste and to work with other countries to evaluate the effectiveness of these measures, so that potential options are provided. Can go Member countries at the Fifth United Nations Environment Assembly in February 2021. Furthermore, we focus on sanitary landfills, through small-scale and community-based projects in Colombia, Central America, and the Dominican Republic to increase the capacity of solid waste management. State Department presented an awareness campaign and challenge is called 'Face the West'. United states team will work with US Embassy officials abroad to raise awareness, and promote action for plastic pollution immediately and effectively with our counterparts.

5G Wireless Technology Cyber Security Threats To U.S.

5G Wireless Technology Cyber Security Threats

5G Wireless Technology Cyber Security To United States

The State Department efforts of the United states government to explain, what is cyber security strategy. It was earlier announced the National Cyber Strategy in September 2018. The international component referring to conscience is something that the state department is leading to interrupt implementation. Our goal is to establish a set of results there that are fast, expensive and transparent. Can be used in an attempt to respond to countries that do not act in a responsible manner, which act inconsistently with responsible norms of state behavior. We are continuing to implement those, and we are doing so in the new year in 2020, and we are working closely with many other governments to find out ways that we can help those states Work together to implement results against. Actors who are acting maliciously. Another major line of effort that we have run for over a year to educate and discuss with other countries about the importance and transformational nature of 5G wireless technologies. This is the fifth generation of wireless technology. 5G is going to be very different from 4G and previous generation of wireless technology as it is empowering the Internet of things and all kinds of new critical infrastructure. This new critical infrastructure will be the backbone of 5G, the ability for devices to communicate at almost 100 times the speed they do today and with much lower latency. New applications of this type include autonomous vehicles, telemedicine, automated manufacturing, and simply large-scale data that has not previously been performed on communications networks. Having that data will also empower artificial intelligence and other very important services for the government and the public. Therefore it is very important that the technology should be secure. We think you definitely need cybersecurity best practices on these 5G networks, but a possible compromise, software or firmware, that rides on the hardware system - because it can be compromised This means that no test regime has any ability to ensure that these updates contain some sort of millions of lines of code. There is no vulnerability. So you really need a trustworthy relationship between the vendors of this technology and the telecom operator and the government where that technology is to be deployed. Last year we have worked closely with a large number of countries, especially with Europe. Have worked together as they are working on security measures for 5G. We saw a risk assessment to the European Union in early October stating that they needed to be concerned about these trust factors and look at a foreign government's ability to influence the seller that their 5G technology Providing; And in particular, they should also look at the ownership structure of that company and whether that company is subject to coercion, and ultimately, whether that company is subject to it - in a legal environment where there are democratic checks and balances. We have shared it - from the United States' point of view, we have shared our concern that the National Intelligence Law in China with all institutions in China since 2017 Security is required to comply with the mandate of intelligence services - and do so covertly to change, and to appeal to an independent judiciary or law and order rule as an investigation on that power from those intelligence security services There is no way out, so we are pleased to see that the European Union has identified that risk in its risk assessment. We also saw in a statement released on 3 December developing the Council of the European Union that they also understood the importance of looking at non-technical measures and specifically looking at the legal and policy framework where The vendor is headquartered for 5G technology. So in the next new year we will have a European Union security toolbox for 5G Is likely to see; That is, special measures that address the security risks they already assess. We are going to work together with European allies in the new year, along with allies and allies from around the world, which we are already working on 5G security measures.

United States And France Dialogue On Cyber Security And Cyber Policy Issues

United States And France Cyber Security Cyber Policy Issues

United States And France Dialogue On Cyber Policy Issues

The third cyber dialogue of the United States and France was held in Paris, France on January 22, 2020 to confirm our on-going partnership on cyber security and cyber policy issues. Our governments share a commitment to ensuring an open, mutual, reliable and secure cyberspace in which all states behave responsibly. the united states and France discuss efforts to advance sustainability in cyberspace Of Diplomatic progress in multilateral and regional security locations, 5G security concerns, Domestic cyber security issues, And cyber capacity building. United states and France  reaffirmed their support for a framework of responsible state behavior in cyberspace, which is predicated on the applicability of existing law of nations , adherence to non-binding lifetime norms of state behavior, and the implementation of practical trust building measures. The both countries United States and France  delegation also discussed elements of a joint statement on Advancing Responsible State Behavior in Cyberspace, signed by the united states, France and 25 other countries on September 23, 2019, with states working together on a voluntary basis to hold them accountable Commitment to do was involved. They work contrary to this framework. Robert L, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Cyber and International Communications and knowledge Policy. Stryer led the US delegation, which included representatives from the departments of commerce, defense, homeland security, justice, and the state Digital Affairs Ambassador, Henri Verdier,  led a French inter-delegation consisting of representatives from the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, the National Cyber Security Agency, the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of the soldiers , and therefore the Ministry of Justice. The United States of Washington, Look forward to hosting the next talk in DC.

United States 5G Technology Cyber Security Issues

The United States 5G Cyber Security Issues

The United States 5G Cyber Security Issues

The United States, State Department that is responsible for our international engagement in matters of cyber security and the digital economy.  the United States' efforts to promote an open, inter-trusted, reliable and secure cyberspace, and to see technology deployed around the world, including 5G technology, which is secure and reliable. As we Now let's see, almost half of the world's population will now connect to the Internet. We look forward to seeing 3 billion people connected after that. But more than that, the amount of deployment that we have seen, and we have clearly received tremendous economic as growth, trillions of dollars are generated in just one year because we are over-capacity; Greater sharing of data, information, Internationally, the ecosystem we have has improved the supply chain from the Internet. Of course, with those great opportunities, there are big challenges. Internally cyberspace is borderless, so action taken by one country in one part of the world can immediately affect others in other parts of the world, so we must cooperate and coordinate in cyberspace. We must use diplomatic means to ensure that we are coordinated with partners, colleagues and other friends to bring them, and then to ensure stability in cyberspace and to promote and prevent successful activities in cyberspace. Talk to competitors and consultants about. Prevent cyber incidents from occurring that might otherwise disrupt view commerce across cyberspace. One of the most significant achievements of this year on the cooperation front was during the high-level week at the United Nations General Assembly in late September. Deputy Secretary Sullivan led a ministerial engagement where we joined 26 other countries in a joint signing to sign our joint views about sustainability in cyberspace, including, first, the norms of responsible state behavior in cyberspace Committed to responsible state behavior, and crimes against these norms of responsible nation behavior. the United Nations has developed approximately 12 criteria for responsible state behavior. And so the golden rule of those norms is that one nation should not attack the other nation's critical infrastructure that is providing services to the public. We saw that action in recent years, including the launch of the Not Petia attack by Russia in 2018 that neutralized critical infrastructure around the world, along with North Korea's WannaCry ransomware attack Important services were interrupted. Publicly also. That is why we have promoted those norms. We have also joined the post-national cyber strategy, which was released in September of 2018. In the final year of implementation, we are leading the interim to implement our National Cyber Preventive Strategy. We know that our key competitors and consultants in cyberspace see cyber as an asymmetric tool to achieve their ends. . They will use cyber to achieve their political, economic, and even military end in cyberspace, so we must be vigilant in our response to those. And it is important that we continue to develop a global consensus around responsible state behavior in cyberspace. My office is also there to lead our efforts to work with our partners and allies and others, so that they can create fifth generation wireless Educate you about the technology or the risks from 5G. it undermines all of our future critical infrastructure and provides tremendous amounts of data that can be used for artificial intelligence and online services. And enable a whole new set of activities. But of course, when we have so much connectivity, its disruption of sensitive personal data and corporate data - could be put at risk in those networks. This is why we think that we should only be the most reliable for vendors that provide 5G equipment - namely, software and hardware - for those networks.
During the past year, we have worked very closely with European countries in particular, as they are one of the first to exit on 5G.

European Union 5G Risk Assessment

We had an EU risk assessment in early October noting a number of concerns that we are sharing with them, including that due to the nature of 5G there will be a new expanded software attack and those countries need to focus on the risk of third country impact on the vendors for those networks. China have indicated countries that have a national intelligence law that requires a company to take necessary actions by intelligence and security services and do so in secret. Such an effect has been highlighted in the risk assessment in the European Union, and this was further revealed on 3 December by the findings of the European Union Council, which also acknowledged that they would have a legal and policy framework governing the company. Need to see if there will be a vendor for 5G. So we have made a lot of progress in this. There will now be a set of security recommendations, a toolbox that they call for in the EU, likely to arrive from the EU this month or the next few months. So next year we are going to focus a lot on helping European countries implement these security measures. Security for 5G is not just about technical cyber measures that may include encryption, network architecture, configuration. It also focuses on what we call non-technical measures. This is the ability to trust a vendor in the network. It is natural for a vendor in the supply chain to place malicious code across several millions of lines of code and it cannot be discovered through any kind of technical means, so you must trust the network. We have seen that Europeans recognize this and we have started recognizing that concern to governments around the world. So we have made a lot of progress in that area. The third thing that I wanted to highlight was that the State Department is the head of many international communication standards bodies that we engage in worldwide. It was the conference last year at the World Radiocombinancing Conference - Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, which was important as they call their spectrum conference. we identified 17 GHz of millimeter-wave spectrum, which would be very important for the deployment of 5G. which was identified for 5G Spectrum, aligns with the Federal Communications Commission 5G Fast Plan. This means that we will continuously strive around the world to use the same band for 5G to increase the interoperability of devices and the scale of devices that are all using the same band. This was a significant result for us and the continued deployment of 5G in the United States. we are going to start a digital connectivity and cyberspace partnership, which is a way to support us, countries around the world have increased their connectivity and deploy sustainable models for digital infrastructure to do so in a manner that is consistent with open, secure and democratic values.
