Pak gets new US ambassador

Cameron Munter
Washington, Oct 1: The US Senate has appointed Cameron Munter as next US Ambassador to Pakistan on Friday, Sep 30.

"Given the importance of our relationship with Pakistan and many issues we are trying to tackle together to bring prosperity and stability to the region, we could not afford a delay in confirming our next Ambassador," said Senator John Kerry, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

"As I saw on my recent visit to Pakistan where I toured flood-stricken areas, Pakistan is suffering from its worst natural disaster in modern history," he said, adding the US will continue to stand with the people of Pakistan and has already led international donor efforts.
