‘Russians Are Feeling the Pressure’
What U.S. ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield wants from the 77th U.N. General Assembly.
The post of ambassador to the United Nations is one of the most important diplomatic positions in the world. The United States has long placed some of its biggest names in the role, including George H.W. Bush, who would go on to become president; Susan Rice, a former U.S. National Security Council advisor; and Madeleine Albright, who eventually served as U.S. secretary of state. Perhaps the most important period for the person holding this role is the week when the annual United Nations General Assembly’s meetings are at their peak: next week.
