Huntsman may replace Tefft as US ambassador to Russia
U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Tefft, whose term expires this autumn, confirmed today that former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman may replace him.
"We are waiting for Huntsman," Tefft said on the sidelines of the Fort Ross Dialogue.
"I promised I would be here for three years and I will serve my country for three years here," TASS cited him as saying.
Tefft has been serving as the U.S. Ambassador to Russia since November 2014.
