Statement by Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield on the Omnibus Spending Bill
From day one, the Biden Administration has been committed to actively engaging in multilateral organizations, and I appreciate the congressional support for this work. The bipartisan funding bill is a powerful endorsement of this Administration’s commitment to advance American leadership abroad and support the Ukrainian people in their courageous fight to defend their country and democracy. The $100 million provided through the bill is also an important step toward helping pay down arrears incurred by the U.S. at the United Nations and promoting human rights abroad. I look forward to continuing to work with Congress to ensure that the U.S. meets its financial commitments to the UN.
