The London International Media Hub leads the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Global Public Affairs’ engagement with global media outlets based in the U.K. Located at the U.S. Embassy in London, U.K, we take advantage of London’s position as a global center for international media to arrange interviews for foreign outlets operating in London with U.S. officials visiting or transiting the U.K. The Hub Director serves as an Arabic-language spokesperson for the State Department, offering interviews in Arabic on radio and television. The London Hub also partners with local organizations to organize occasional programs and events for foreign journalists resident in the U.K.

Director and Arabic Language Spokesperson – Christiaan James
