Assistant Secretary of State for Conflict and Stabilization Operations Anne A. Witkowsky will travel to Stockholm, Sweden, and Paris, France, May 22-26 for discussions with allies and partners on a range of conflict prevention, stabilization, and strategic coordination issues.

In Stockholm, Assistant Secretary Witkowsky, USAID Assistant to the Administrator for the Bureau for Conflict Prevention and Stabilization Robert Jenkins, and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Counternarcotics and Stabilization Policy James Saenz will participate in a meeting of the Stabilization Leaders Forum.  The Forum will explore avenues for greater collaboration, including partnership-based, long-term efforts underway through the implementation of the U.S. Strategy to Prevent Conflict and Promote Stability.

The Assistant Secretary will travel onward to Paris for high-level meetings with French government counterparts to underscore both new opportunities to collaborate through the Strategy and our deep and longstanding transatlantic commitment to European security and coordination.  She will also discuss means for further engagement with, and through, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development for the Strategy’s implementation.
