Minority Leader criticizes White House pick for UN Ambassador

[Below is the text of a press release just issued by the Senate Democratic Communications Center.]

REID STATEMENT ON BOLTON AS U.N. AMBASSADOR NOMINEE

Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid made the following statement on the nomination of Undersecretary of State John R. Bolton to be the next U. S. Ambassador to the United Nations:

√?¬Ę√Ę‚??¬¨√?‚??This is a disappointing choice and one that sends all the wrong signals. At a time when President Bush has recognized we need to begin repairing our damaged relations with the rest of the world, he nominates someone with a long history of being opposed to working cooperatively with other nations. Just as unfortunate, Mr. Bolton has overseen this Administration√?¬Ę√Ę‚??¬¨√Ę‚??¬Ęs flawed proliferation policy that has seen North Korea quadruple its nuclear arsenal and seen Iran take dangerous steps toward the development of nuclear weapons. Mr. Bolton will have much to answer for during the course of his confirmation hearings.√?¬Ę√Ę‚??¬¨ ¬Ě
