Adrian Zuckerman, confirmed by the Senate as the new US Ambassador to Romania

The U.S. Senate confirmed Adrian Zuckerman by a 65-30 vote as the new U.S. Ambassador to Romania on Wednesday.

Adrian Zuckerman immigrated to the United States from Romania at the age of 10 and is fluent in Romanian. Adrian Zuckerman graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1979 and the New York Law School in 1983. He was first nominated by president Donald Trump in July 2018.

He said at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on his nomination in June that he wished to repay American hospitality by advancing U.S. interests in Romania.

“If I am confirmed, I would like to offer constant support to the important steps to fight corruption in Romania,” he said in the Senate.

“Combating corruption and supporting judicial independence are vital to Romania’s long-term prosperity and security,” said Adrian Zuckerman.

He got the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s go-ahead in September.

Zuckerman will be able to take office in Bucharest after the final vote by the American Congress.
