New U. N. Ambassador Kelly craft took its seat Thursday on the U. N. security Council, finally, a permanent replacement for Nikki Haley — only a few days before President Trump goes into Turtle Bay for the opening of the body is the General Assembly.

“I’m not coming to the emissary U. N. only as a President, but as a voice of America’s unwavering commitment to democracy, freedom, human rights, and, if possible, the peaceful resolution of conflicts,” she told reporters in front of the Council chamber.


“In a world that is characterized by humanitarian crises and geopolitical challenges, strong American leadership is absolutely important, and I intend to deliver,” she said.

Craft, a former U.S. Ambassador to Canada, was confirmed to be present by the Senate in July and arrived in New York to your credentials to U. N. Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres. Moments later, she took part in a series of votes on a series of Affairs of Libya, the Central African Republic.

She was warmly welcomed by all the members of the Council. UK Ambassador Karen Pierce told reporters that she had spoken briefly “to say Hello and how nice it was to have you with us, this is fantastic.”

The Russian Ambassador Vasily Nebenzia, with which the craft is likely to clash on many issues, began their relationship by saying her appointment was a “long-awaited” and he is looking forward to a “fruitful and constructive and long cooperation.”


Craft, who is not immediately known as Haley, will be closely watched for the extent to which they continue the combative approach of its predecessor.

The trump card of the administration has taken a skeptical attitude towards the U. N. operations. While the United States managed a series of sanctions against North Korea, and South Sudan, which has drawn the played roles of the Iran nuclear deal ” and the Paris climate agreement-in the U. N. key.

It has also cut funding for the U. N. Palestinian Agency; moved out of the scandal-ridden U. N. Human Rights Council and the U. N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), as well as a U. N. (arms trade treaty); and challenged what it claims is anti-American and anti-Israel bias in the body. The craft is expected to continue, the attitude.

The craft will be exactly observed, for their positions on energy and climate protection. The U. N. has N. increasingly on climate change in the last few years, and Guterres, the goals for Sustainable development has been a cornerstone of his time as the head of the U.

During the purchase process, Democrats expressed concerns about her past comments about climate change. Her husband, Joe craft, a coal executive, and the couple has investments in the energy industry. You said you would recuse yourself, when ever a question came up, where they had a direct financial interest.

It also remains to be seen to what extent the craft has the same degree of independence as Haley, who resigned in December. In contrast to Haley’s, craft’s position is not Cabinet level. It was a Cabinet level position under former President Barack Obama and the first years of the Trump-administration, with some experts saying that the position should not with a seat in the Cabinet.

“The un Ambassador, Cabinet member, a President signals that the U. N. is an important component of American foreign policy,” U. N.-based columnist Benny Avni told Fox News. “It should not be. U. N. Ambassador should have the same rank as other U.S. envoys around the world.”

To promote, to say, “[former U. N. Ambassador] John Bolton used his job was, the interests of the United States at the U. N., not the promotion of the U. N. in America,” he said. “Too often, the Ambassador, the do, members of the Cabinet the latter.”


Yet in the midst of the increasing Chinese influence on the U. N., craft, installation is likely to help to discover the United States better, their vote in the U. N. Jonathan quail, a former U.S. Mission spokesman under Haley, told Fox News that the craft in the position is formally important for U.S. goals at the U. N.

“It is crucial to maximize the full representation in the security Council and General Assembly, and to remove our influence on them, how best, crises, and other important decisions-ending war, ensuring effective peace operations, with rogue Nations, weapons of mass destruction, the maintenance of regional stability, providing humanitarian aid, contracts, and much, much more, the influence on the Americans, our allies and people around the globe,” he said.

He said that while Deputy Jonathan Cohen “stepped up and worked long hours” during the transitional period, Craft participation “is not only welcome, but essential.

“They, like their predecessors, with many complicated and intense days ahead, as you navigate through the complexity of the UN Affairs and tries to be common sense to so many of the problems of the world, like you can,” he said.


Craft the entrance to the U. N. comes after the departure from the White house from Bolton as national security Advisor. But even with Bolton’s departure, there are many U. N.-skeptics on the left in the administration.

Secretary of state Mike Pompeo, has expressed its concern over the U. N. while Trump once closed the speeches by U. N. as “a club for people to come together and have a good time.”
