The Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a business meeting, in part, to vote on ambassadorial nominations. Six nominations were approved by voice vote. The nominations included John C. Rood to be Assistant Secretary of State for International Security and Non-Proliferation; Cesar Benito Cabrera to be Ambassador to the Republic of Mauritius, and to serve concurrently as Ambassador to the Republic of Seychelles; Cindy Lou Courville to be U.S. Representative to the African Union, with the rank of ambassador; Donald C. Johnson to be ambassador to the Republic of Equatorial Guinea; Mary Martin Ourisman to be Ambassador to Barbados, and to serve concurrently as ambassador to St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Antigua and Barbuda, the Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

In addition, there were brief remarks about the extradition treaty between the United States of America and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The treaty was then approved by voice vote.

Also, committee members briefly debated the nomination of Richard Hoagland to be U.S. ambassador to Armenia. The nomination was approved 13 to 5 on a roll call vote. 

It was announced that a vote on the nomination of John Bolton to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations was postponed until a later date. He currently holds that position under a 2005 temporary recess appointment by President Bush. close
