TEPLITZ TO REPLACE Bodde aS US ENVOY
Jul 8, 2015-
US President Barack Obama on Tuesday nominated Peter W Bodde as the new US ambassador to Libya.
He will be replaced in Nepal by Alaina B Teplitz. Foreign Ministry sources said Teplitz is a career member of the US Foreign Service and has been serving as the director of the Office of Management Policy, Rightsizing and Innovation since 2012.
Bodde has been serving as the US envoy to Nepal since 2012. He was nominated for Libya nearly three years after the demise of US Ambassador Christopher Stevens during an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi in September 2012. If the nomination is confirmed, Bodde would replace Ambassador Deborah Jones, who is currently based in Malta after the US Embassy in Tripoli was evacuated last year.
