WASHINGTON—Representative Eliot L. Engel, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, today made the following statement:

“Ambassador to the U.N. is one of our most important diplomatic positions, and I’m uneasy with the President’s nomination of someone with such limited diplomatic experience. This position requires face-to-face negotiations with important allies and hardened adversaries, all while navigating the complex bureaucracy of the United Nations. I hope to hear from her soon about her vision for this job and I plan to watch her confirmation process with interest.”
