Washington, D.C. (Dec. 7, 2018)—Better World Campaign President Peter Yeo issued the following statement on the nomination of Heather Nauert to be the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations:

“The Better World Campaign congratulates Ms. Nauert on her nomination.

“At this critical juncture in world affairs, U.S. leadership and funding at the United Nations matters. We have seen the benefits of a robust U.S.-UN relationship over the years—great strides in reducing extreme poverty and advancing global health plus meaningful reforms in development, management, and peacekeeping operations—which have served American interests while strengthening the UN.

“We hope Ms. Nauert will continue the strong partnership with UN Secretary-General Guterres established by Ambassador Haley, as we confront the issues that face the U.S., the UN, and the world.”
