Verification and Compliance  The Bureau of Verification and Compliance 
provides oversight, with respect to both policy and resources, on all 
matters relating to ensuring and verifying compliance with international 
arms control, nonproliferation, and disarmament agreements and 
commitments. In this regard, the Bureau develops verification proposals 
and assessments for prospective arms control, nonproliferation, and 
disarmament agreements and commitments, and supports and participates in 
such negotiations and related consultations. The Bureau is responsible 
for the preperation of the President's Anuual Report to Congress on 
Adherence to and Compliance with Arms Control, Nonproliferation, and 
Disarmament Agreements and Commitments, for verifiability assessments 
for international arms control and non proliferation agreements, and for 
specialized compliance reports required by Senate resolutions of 
ratification. The Bureau participates in interagency groups and 
organizations that assess, analyze, or review U.S. planned or ongoing 
policies, programs, and resources that have a direct bearing on 
verification or compliance matters, and it advocates directly with the 
intelligence community and others on verification and compliance related 
policy issues. The Bureau also assists in the evaluation of transfers 
related to weapons of mass destruction (including WMD-capable delivery 
systems) by foreign entities that are potentially contrary to U.S. 
sanctions, laws, and Executive orders, and advises on determinations of 
sanctionability.

Foreign Service  To a great extent the future of our country depends on 
the relations we have with other countries, and those relations are 
conducted principally by the U.S. Foreign Service. Trained 
representatives stationed worldwide provide the President and the 
Secretary of State with much of the raw material from which foreign 
policy is made and with the recommendations that help shape it.

[[Page 303]]

    Ambassadors are the personal representatives of the President and 
report to the President through the Secretary of State. Ambassadors have 
full responsibility for implementation of U.S. foreign policy by any and 
all U.S. Government personnel within their country of assignment, except 
those under military commands. Their responsibilities include 
negotiating agreements between the United States and the host country, 
explaining and disseminating official U.S. policy, and maintaining 
cordial relations with that country's government and people.
    A listing of Foreign Service posts, together with addresses and 
telephone numbers and key personnel, appears in Key Officers of Foreign 
Service Posts--Guide for Business Representatives, which is for sale by 
the Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, Washington,
