On July 17, 2013 powers testified before the senate foreign relations committee in Washington D.C. there she received almost unanimous support from the foreign relations committee and is likely to get a similar response from a full senate vote. She has been nominated to replace Susan rice as the 28th US Ambassador to the United Nations.
Samantha powers say that the UNs security councils inactive role in Syria was a disgrace. She promises to bring Venezuelan government to task. In her opening statement to the foreign relations committee she not only talked about United Nations but also spoke her mind on the Israel issue. She said: First, The UN must be fair. The UN cannot focus disproportionate attention on a few, while giving a pass to others flouting their international obligations. She also said that there cannot be one code of law of one state and another for another state.. She holds the point that every state must be given an equal treatment. Furthermore she is of the view that Israel has been a friend for the united states, she says:Israel is a country with whom we share security interests and even more fundamentally, with whom we share core values-the values of democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
Powers promises that she would continue to work tirelessly for Israel and she would defend it against any unjust condemnations. Her future as a US ambassador does look strong.
