U.S. President Donald Trump offered Department of the State spokeswoman Heather Nauert the office of the Head of the U.S. Permanent Mission to the United Nations. Fox News reported that with the reference to a high-rank source in the White House.
It is so far unknown whether Department of the State spokeswoman agreed to replace Nikki Haley; the incumbent leader of the U.S. delegation is to leave the office by the end of the year.
Nauert and Trump met at the Oval Office on Monday; the Department of the State's spokeswoman appeared to be not the only candidate for this job. The list also includes other officials, specifically Jamie D. McCourt, the incumbent U.S. ambassador to France.
Earlier, Haley said Russia pressured the independent sanctions monitors to amend a report that was eventually submitted to the Security Council's North Korea sanctions committee last month. The report said Pyongyang did not suspend its nuclear and missile programs and that it was a violation of UN sanctions on export.
