US Senate To Review Morningstar As Envoy To Azerbaijan Today

A A A A

US Senate’s Committee on Foreign Relations will hold hearing to examine the nomination of Richard Morningstar to the post of ambassador to Azerbaijan today.

President Barack Obama nominated US Secretary of State’s Special Envoy for Eurasian Energy Richard Morningstar to the post of ambassador to Azerbaijan late April after resignation of Matthew Bryza on January 2012, APA reports quoting the US Senate’s official website. Though Bryza was appointed by the president, his candidacy was not approved in the Congress under the pressure of the Armenian lobby.

Richard Morningstar has been working in the post of US Secretary of State’s Special Envoy for Eurasian Energy since April 2009. He taught courses at Stanford Law School (2004-2009) and at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University (2003-2009). From 1999 to 2001, he served as US Ambassador to the European Union.
