NEW YORK, May 19, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Ambassador Susan Rice, President Obama's National Security Adviser, will address the AJC Global Forum 2016 in Washington, D.C., on June 6.
"Ambassador Rice has been central to the formulation and execution of American foreign policy during President Obama's two terms," said AJC CEO David Harris. "We have had the privilege of working with her in her capacity as U.S. Ambassador to the UN during the President's first term, and, for the past three years, as National Security Adviser. We are honored to welcome her to our Global Forum."
More than 2,500 people from across the U.S. and more than 70 countries around the world are expected to attend Rice's address, during the World Leaders Plenary session at the Global Forum. The two other confirmed speakers for that evening are Claudia Ruiz Massieu, Secretary of Foreign Affairs of Mexico, and Federica Mogherini, the European Union's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.
At the time, AJC welcomed President Obama's appointment of Rice to be the National Security Adviser in June 2013 as "an inspired choice."
A month earlier, AJC presented Rice with the global Jewish advocacy organization's Distinguished Public Service Award at a luncheon at the UN, during which Israeli Ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor was also honored.
