Intellasia East Asia News – Senate committee approves new US ambassador to Korea

The US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations voted to approve the nomination of new US Ambassador to Korea Philip Goldberg on Wednesday, putting the nomination to a vote by a Senate plenary session.

When the nomination will be put to a vote in a Senate plenary has yet to be known.

If appointed, Goldberg will replace Harry Harris who stepped down early last year when President Joe Biden took office.

Goldberg is a career member of the Senior Foreign Service, the highest diplomatic rank in US foreign service.

He previously served as coordinator for implementation of UN Security Council Resolution on North Korea in 2009-2019 before serving as US ambassador to the Philippines between 2013 and 2016.

The US diplomat, who has also served as assistant secretary of state for intelligence and research, has been serving as ambassador to Colombia since September 2019.
