U.S. Department of State

Diplomacy in Action

Strategic Objective #1: Achieve Peace and Security

FY 2006 Performance and Accountability Report
Bureau of Resource Management
November 2006


The foremost responsibility of government is protecting the life, liberty, and property of its citizens. Since our struggle for independence, diplomacy and development assistance have become critical to our nation's security. The Department of State and USAID lead the effort to build and maintain relationships, coalitions, and alliances that promote economic, social and cultural cooperation, helping create the conditions for peace, and containing or eliminating potential dangers from abroad before they can harm our citizens.

Our security is best guaranteed when our friends and neighbors are secure, free, and prosperous, and when they respect human rights and the rule of law. As a result, the Department and USAID focus their efforts on resolving regional conflicts, countering global terror networks, combating international organized crime, and keeping weapons of mass destruction out of the hands of those who seek to harm the United States, our allies, and our friends.

The following are the strategic goals that fall under this strategic objective:

Strategic Goal 1: Regional Stability

Strategic Goal 2: Counterterrorism

Strategic Goal 3: Homeland Security

Strategic Goal 4: Weapons of Mass Destruction

Strategic Goal 5: International Crime and Drugs

Strategic Goal 6: American Citizens
