by | Feb 20, 2012

TBILISI, DFWatch – The change of U.S. Ambassador to Georgia is routine, says the embassy’s press service.

‘Ambassadors are replaced once in three years. John Bass has been Ambassador to Georgia since October 2009. Consequently, three years will pass in autumn 2012. He may leave Georgia in August or in September. Thereafter, a new ambassador will be appointed to Georgia. The Senate has to approve a new candidate prior to that,’ according to the press service.

Richard Boyce Norland, 57, is a former Ambassador to Uzbekistan who currently works as international affairs advisor at the National War College in Washington.

President Obama proposed him as the new U.S. Ambassador to Georgia on 17 February.
