  • President of the United States
    Under the Constitution, the president is the federal official primarily responsible for the relations of the United States with foreign nations. The president appoints ambassadors, ministers, and consuls — subject to confirmation by the Senate — and receives foreign ambassadors and other public officials. The president decides whether to recognize new nations and new governments, and negotiate treaties with other nations, which become binding on the United States when approved by two-thirds of the Senate. With the secretary of state, the president manages all official contacts with foreign governments. The website of the White House provides speeches and statements by the president, announcements, fact sheets, and other documents on foreign policy issues.

    The Department of State is the Cabinet-level foreign affairs agency of the United States Government, equivalent to foreign ministries in other countries. It is administered by the United States Secretary of State. The Department´s website offers speeches, statements, fact sheets, reports and other US foreign policy documents
