Resignation of the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton
WASHINGTON, DC, December 5, 2006
The World Council of the Cedars Revolution is deeply saddened by the recent resignation of the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton.
Ambassador Bolton was steadfast, committed and dedicated in his vision of a Middle East, free of terrorism and oppression. He was clear, concise, and unrelenting in his work and in his view on the tough issues he faced regarding North Korea, Iran and the Middle East, and was the best individual to bring about reform to the United Nations and to the Middle East
Ambassador Bolton also worked towards ending human rights violations throughout the Middle East, more specifically in Lebanon, and for that he will be deeply missed.
President Bush best summarized this loss when he stated that “he [Ambassador Bolton] served his country with extraordinary dedication and skill, assembling coalitions that addressed some of the most consequential issues facing the international community. During his tenure, he articulately advocated the positions and values of the United States and advanced the expansion of democracy and liberty.”
The World Council of the Cedars Revolution extends its gratitude to Ambassador Bolton for his work towards the restoration of democracy to Lebanon, wish him the best for the future, and hopes that his replacement will continue the great work the Ambassador has done.
