Today, Under Secretary of State for Civilian Security, Democracy, and Human Rights Uzra Zeya is in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, “to engage on democratic governance and rule of law; human rights and protection of vulnerable populations; and religious freedom.“

Prior to arriving in Uzbekistan, the under secretary led the delegation at the third annual United States-Kazakhstan High-Level Dialogue (HLD) on Human Rights and Democratic Reforms “to underscore our partnership and support for Kazakhstan’s domestic reforms.“

State Department Spokesperson Matthew Miller said, “In Tashkent, Under Secretary Zeya will give remarks at the Academic Conference on Constitutional Criminal Procedures, hosted by Regional Dialogue, to bolster Uzbekistan’s ongoing implementation of constitutional reforms on human rights and equal access to justice. She will also engage senior government officials, civil society, and human rights defenders to promote gender equality, combat gender-based violence, support religious freedom, and protect vulnerable populations.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the under secretary of state to receive God’s wisdom as she meets with foreign governing officials and advocates for the protections of human rights and religious freedoms.
  • For Secretary Blinken to seek the Lord’s guidance as he heads the State Department.
  • For the president and his foreign policy advisors to be led by God in their decisions.
