RUDOLF PERINA HOPES THERE WILL BE NO DIFFICULTIES WITH NOMINATION OF NEW US AMBASSADOR TO ARMENIA
"We are hopeful that there will be no difficulties in the US Congress
connected with the appointment of the new Ambassador-designate to
Armenia," outgoing US Charge d’Affaires Rudolf Perina told ArmInfo
"I’m assured a new candidate fro US Ambassador will be nominated,
and I expect to hear about the new nomination as soon as possible,"
the Ambassador noted. He reminded that the candidacy must be proposed
by the White House. "The nomination comes only from the US President,
that is why I cannot say definitely when the statement about the
new candidate is going to be made. Certainly the candidacy must be
approved by the US Congress, and we hope that this time there will be
no difficulties," Mr. Perina noted. Nevertheless, he added that it
is impossible to predict what will happen, since the final decision
must be taken by the Congress.
