Inside the State Department: UN General Assembly Week — Thursday, September 27, 2012


ASSISTANT SECRETARY JACOBSON: Today is our
big day. We’re doing a huge number of Western Hemisphere meetings on Latin America and the
Caribbean. The second is on energy – a huge topic in the Americas. The potential for energy
in this hemisphere is enormous. And then, Secretary Clinton will be meeting with the
Friends of Haiti to talk about how reconstruction is going since the earthquake and how we can
move ahead together. SECRETARY CLINTON: Thank you all very much,
and I hope that you’ve had some lunch. I am well aware that running around during New
York the week of the General Assembly, there’s hardly a moment to breathe, let alone to eat. DIRECTOR SULLIVAN: You know any given day
at UNGA, you are going to look around the world so from the Middle East to East Asia
to our own backyard, that’s just day in the life of the Secretary at the UN General Assembly. AMBASSADOR MARSHALL: Here we are in the middle
of the UN General Assembly Week – our annual trek to New York to meet and greet with all
of the top diplomats. The Secretary will be up here momentarily. We’re just about ready
with our final prep on the flags as you can see. And then, we will be moving into about
five or six other events to wrap up today and prep for tomorrow.
