John Kerry next US Sec­re­tary of State


Pres­i­dent Obama has nom­i­nated Se­na­tor John Kerry to serve as Sec­re­tary of State. “Over th­ese many years, John has earned the re­spect and con­fi­dence of lead­ers around the world,” the Pres­i­dent said. “He is not go­ing to need a lot of on-the-job train­ing. He has earned the re­spect and trust of his Se­nate col­leagues, Democrats and Repub­li­cans. I think it’s fair to say that few in­di­vid­u­als know as many pres­i­dents and prime min­is­ters, or grasp our for­eign poli­cies as firmly as John Kerry. And this makes him a per­fect choice to guide Amer­i­can di­plo­macy in the years ahead.”

John Kerry is to re­place Se­na­tor Hil­lary Clin­ton.
