New US Ambassador to Libya Named | ALCCI

www.alcci.org [cached]

The American Libyan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ALCCI) has learned that President Barrack Obama has decided to appoint Deborah K. Jones as the new US Ambassador to Libya, to replace former Ambassador Chris Stevens who was killed in Benghazi, along with three other diplomatic staff, on 11 September 2012.

...
The appointment of Ambassador Jones was formally announced by State Department when Secretary of State John Kerry met with Prime Minister Ali Zeidan in Washington on March 13.
...
The US Department of State had not officially announced the appointment before that visit, though the Libyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs had unofficially reported on Monday March 11 that it had already approved the appointment of Ambassador Jones, just prior to the visit of PM Zeidan.
Ambassador Jones has had a long and distinguished career with State Department, having joined in 1982. A native of New Mexico in the American southwest, Ambassador Jones speaks Arabic, which she studied at the US Foreign Service Institute in Virginia as well as at the State Department's Field School in Tunisia. She also speaks French and Spanish.
Ms. Jones was US ambassador to Kuwait between 2008 and 2011. Earlier she served as Country Director in the Office of Arabian Peninsula and Iran Affairs. She then became Desk Officer for Jordan and worked in the State Department's Operations Center and on its Board of Examiners until 2005. From August 2005 to 2007, she was Principal Officer at the US Consulate-General in Istanbul. She has also worked in Abu Dhabi, where her husband Richard G. Olson was Ambassador from 2008 to 2011, as well as in Addis Ababa, Baghdad, Damascus and Buenos Aires.
Ambassador Jones' husband is currently the US Ambassador to Pakistan.
The American Libyan Chamber of Commerce and industry is very pleased with this appointment, and we expect great things from Ambassador Jones. With her strong background in Middle East and North African affairs, Ambassador Jones will be a major asset at this critical time in the development of Libya's economy, and will play a major role in ensuring political stability in the country.
