Biden Returns Victoria Nuland to the State Department
The Senate profile committee will set a date for a hearing at which Nuland will answer questions from lawmakers.
US President Joe Biden officially nominated Victoria Nuland for the post of US Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs. This was announced on Saturday, February 13, by the White House.
Further, her candidacy must be approved by the US Senate.
Nuland has worked in the State Department for more than 30 years and, in particular, was the chief official of the State Department for Russia and the countries of the former USSR, permanent representative to NATO, and special envoy for the Treaty on Conventional Arms in Europe. She worked in China, Russia, and Mongolia.
Nuland's nomination for the post of Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs became known on January 16.
Recall that US President Joe Biden said that his predecessor, Donald Trump, should not be allowed to intelligence briefings, to which former heads of state usually have the right.
