The U.S. Senate overwhelmingly endorsed Nikki Haley as Ambassador to the UN. It was voted 96 senators, against — four, including Democrat Bernie Sanders, Reuters reports.
Some senators expressed concern about the lack of a 45-year-old Hayley of experience in the field of foreign policy.
The candidacy of Haley, who served as Governor of South Carolina, nominated new President of the United States Donald trump.
Earlier the post of the US Ambassador to the UN was held by Samantha Power, appointed by previous President Barack Obama. Its mandate expired on 20 January in connection with the launch of the new U.S. administration led by trump.
Earlier, the President promised change in “all that relates to the UN” after his inauguration. “Everything about the UN change after January 20,” said trump.
