Press and Information Office

Overview

The Press and Information Office of the Public Affairs Section provides press support and information for the Ambassador and all sections of the U.S. Mission, as well as for high-level U.S. Government visitors, trade mission, and official delegations.

We work with members of the media to provide information on policies of the U.S. Administration, disseminate U.S. Government statements, and respond to queries from journalists regarding U.S. Government actions and positions.

The Press section also oversees our social media interactions with the public on our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube platforms. See our streaming from all three platforms here.

Through the Information Resource Center, we provide general information on U.S. history, culture and society to assist members of the media in their coverage of issues related to the United States and its policies.

The Press and Information Office also provides information on special programs for journalists in the U.S., organizes non-academic exchange programs for journalists, and arranges media training in the U.S. for working professionals.
