Consulate General to Launch Online Video Series “Ask the Consulate General”

The U.S. Consulate General launched its online video series, “Ask the Consulate General,” with American Consul General Michael Ratney inaugurating the first video response.

The U.S. Consulate General is inviting the Palestinian public to visit the Consulate General’s social media platforms, Facebook and Twitter, to submit questions about the work of the U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem. Answers will be given by American diplomats in Arabic and appear as a bi-weekly online video series on the Consulate General’s YouTube page.

Questions or comments for this series or any of the work of the U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem may be tweeted at hashtag #AskConsulGeneral or posted to the Consulate General’s Facebook page.

Social media outreach is a critical component of the overall public diplomacy strategy of the U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem with the primary purpose of engaging and informing the Palestinian public on American life and U.S. foreign policy priorities.
