Planting a ghaf tree
July 4, 2019

Chargé d’Affaires Steve Bondy and Minister of Tolerance HE Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak planted a ghaf tree on the grounds of the embassy, in honor of our shared commitment to tolerance, a value that is integral to both of our two countries. Tolerance and equality for all are cherished American beliefs, enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and celebrated every July 4th by Americans around the world.
