Secretary of State Blinken Urges Senate to Swiftly Confirm Key Foreign Policy Nominees to Protect U.S. National Security Interests

Secretary of State Antony Blinken has urged senators to swiftly confirm more than 60 nominees to key foreign policy positions, warning that leaving the roles unfilled would damage America's global standing and national security interests. Senator Rand Paul has blocked the confirmation of the nominees while seeking information on the origins of Covid-19, and Blinken has asked for the senators' leadership to swiftly confirm the nominees and reconsider or work with the Department to find a reasonable and expedited path forward. The confirmation of the nominees is seen as critical to the Biden administration's foreign policy agenda.
