The Nominee to be Ambassador to Croatia W. Robert Kohorst had his Senate on Foreign Relations Committee hearing today. In his statement he confirmed his lack of political or Foreign Service experience, but he did affirm his duty to the U.S. through law and business. He traveled through Croatia last summer hitting all the major destinations – Split, Zagreb, and the gorgeous Plitvice Lakes. He outlined four points of focus: “(1)Strengthening the capabilities of a willing NATO ally. (2) Supporting Croatia’s role in promoting regional stability, cooperation, and Euro-Atlantic integration. (3) Encouraging Croatia’s contribution to regional energy security, while opening new markets to U.S. gas exports. (4) Bolstering Croatia’s economic recovery to make it a more attractive partner for American businesses and exporters,” in his testimony which can be read in full here.
