The US Senate confirms the appointment of Linda Thomas-Greenfield as ambassador to the UN

The US Senate confirmed on Tuesday, at the proposal of President Joseph Biden, the appointment of Linda Thomas-Greenfield as US Ambassador to the United Nations, informs the Associated Press.

The nomination was approved by 78 votes to 20.

Linda Thomas-Greenfield resigned from the State Department during the Donald Trump administration’s 35-year career.

Some Republican politicians have criticized what he sees as his indulgent attitude toward China. Linda Thomas-Greenfield rejected the criticism, admitting that the speech delivered in 2019 at the Confucius Institute was a mistake, but stressing that she did not support Beijing’s policies. In that speech, Linda Thomas-Greenfield praised the $ 1 billion Chinese project “Belt and road.”

Now, Linda Thomas-Greenfield has declared in the Senate that the Chinese nation is a strategic opponent. “Chinese actions threaten our security, our values, our way of life; they are also threats to neighboring countries, internationally,” said Linda Thomas-Greenfield.
