Secretary of State Antony Blinken testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the department’s fiscal year 2022 budget request and its foreign policy priorities. Several members, including Committee Chair Bob Menendez (D-NJ), took issue with the Biden administration’s recent decision to waive sanctions against Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline. Senator Menendez went on to discuss U.S. relations with Russian President Putin: “As the president himself has said, he’s a murderer. He’s KGB and he only understands strength. I would have thought that one of the most significant ways to show strength is to ensure that the pipeline is killed.” Other question topics focused on relations with China, protecting women and girls in Afghanistan, and supporting the families of foreign service officers. close
