U.S. Senate confirmed Hans G. Klemm as the new Ambassador to Romania

In the early evening of August 5, 2015, the U.S. Senate confirmed Hans G. Klemm as the next ambassador to Romania, by voice vote. Klemm, a career member of the Senior Foreign Service, is currently advisor to the State Department’s Under Secretary for Management, a position he has held since January 2015.

He was nominated to be the next U.S. ambassador to Romania on March 24. Romania is a “friend” and a “strategic partner” of the United States, Klemm declared during the hearings in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, assuming to consolidate the bilateral relations and to support anti-corruption efforts. Mark Gitenstein was the previous American ambassador to Romania. His term in office ended on 14 December 2012.
