BAKU. – The next voting in the US Senate on the appointment of Richard Morningstar as Ambassador to Azerbaijan may take place in the coming weeks, US Chargé d’Affaires in Azerbaijan Adam Sterling told reporters on Friday.

He said that this week the US Senate’s Committee on Foreign Relations unanimously approved the nomination of Richard Morningstar as Ambassador to Azerbaijan. But until Morningstar is finally approved by the US Senate, he cannot be considered an ambassador to Azerbaijan.

The US Senate itself determines its own schedule, and it is difficult to say anything about the voting time, but it will take place in the coming weeks.

Earlier, US President Barack Obama nominated Richard Morningstar to be the next Ambassador to Baku, but, pursuant to the US Constitution, he is awaiting confirmation by the Senate, Trend News Agency of Azerbaijan informs.
