The Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a hearing on the nominations of former U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman to be ambassador to Russia and A. Wess Mitchell to serve as assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs.

Ambassador Huntsman acknowledged the heightened tensions between the U.S. and Russia following Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election and the series of closures of diplomatic missions, but also discussed areas of mutual interest and cooperation including reducing North Korea’s nuclear ambitions. The nominee is a former Republican governor of Utah and was a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. close
