The following is a press release from the US Embassy:

Our hearts are with the American people as we mourn the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. I know the grief from this loss weighs heavily on our U.S. Mission, our nation, and our friends. The U.S. Department of Justice has announced a full criminal investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Floyd’s death and the police officer involved has been charged with murder and manslaughter. Our prayers and thoughts are with Mr. Floyd’s family and loved ones and with African Americans who continue to face acts of racist violence and discrimination. That is absolutely contrary to what the United States stands for and why I choose to represent my country as a diplomat. As we pray for truth and healing, we will continue to work together for a more just, equitable, and humane society. U.S. Ambassador Joseph N. Mondello.
