On May 26, the State Department announced the designation of Ambassador Jean Manes as Chargé d’ affaires ad interim to the Republic of El Salvador. Ambassador Manes assumed duties as Civilian Deputy to the Commander and Foreign Policy Advisor, U.S. Southern Command, Miami, FL, in October 2019. SOUTHCOM Area of Responsibility (AOR) encompasses 32 nations (19 in Central and South America and 13 in the Caribbean). She previously served as U.S. Ambassador to San Salvador from March 30, 2016–July 31, 2019.
Secretary Blinken designated Ambassador Jean Manes as Chargé d’ affaires ad interim to the Republic of El Salvador. This appointment reflects the importance of our relations with El Salvador. Ambassador Manes previously served as U.S. Ambassador to El Salvador from 2016 to 2019. In almost 30 years of service as a diplomat, she has extensive experience overseeing U.S. government programs, and she also brings relationships with a broad array of Salvadorans, from government, civil society, and the private sector. These attributes ideally situate her to work collaboratively to improve conditions in El Salvador and address the root causes of irregular migration.

President Nayib Bukele of El Salvador is seeking to concentrate all political power in his own hands. The US should act swiftly to condemn his power grab. https://t.co/nV8gUxBtRW pic.twitter.com/uTnLTGXHOy

Nayib Bukele attacks other El Salvadoran political parties for negotiating with the country's powerful gangs. Yet his own party, Neuvas Ideas, has deep ties with gang leaders, a relationship hidden by their virulently "tough-on-crime" propaganda. https://t.co/6qobTZEYjV
