The Obama administration’s long-stated desire to prioritize reform at the United Nations finally has a full-time face: The U.S. Senate on Thursday confirmed Joseph Torsella as permanent representative for U.N. management and reform, an ambassador-level post.
U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice welcomed Torsella’s confirmation, calling him an “outstanding advocate for serious, sustained, and comprehensive U.N. reform.”
“Across the U.S. government, we are working tirelessly to ensure that U.S. taxpayer money is spent wisely,” Rice said in a statement. “As ambassador, Joe Torsella will energetically champion a more efficient and effective U.N., which is critical to enhancing the security of all Americans.”
