104 STAT. 30 PUBLIC LAW 101-246—FEB. 16, 1990 (1) The Department of State is currently reviewing its organizational structure. (2) Each of the geographical bureaus deals with a large number of countries and often a broad diversity of cultures, nationalities, and ethnic divisions. (3) The territory covered by the Bureau of Near Eastern and South Asian Affairs, for example, stretches from the Atlantic coast of Morocco to the Bay of Bengal, includes twenty-five countries, more than a billion people, a number of regional disputes, and several cultural and linguistic divisions. The Bureau of Inter-American Affairs has within its jurisdiction thirty-three countries, including Mexico, the nations of the Caribbean Basin, and Central and South America. (4) Among the most pressing international issues is the prospect for global warming. Over the next few years, American leadership at the international level will be crucial to worldwide efforts to ensure that global warming does not occur. The Department of State will need to consider appropriate steps to prepare for the leadership role of the United States. (5) The United States continues to face a foreign intelligence threat, including the danger to United States diplomatic missions. The Department of State will need to improve its ability to detect and prevent intelligence penetration of United States missions abroad.
