Press Release

MIAMI ­­– Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) issued the following statement after United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley announced she would step down from her role at the end of the year.

“Ambassador Nikki Haley has demonstrated exceptional leadership at the helm of the U.S. mission in New York.  She has been a steadfast advocate for the United States and our values by promoting human rights, democracy, and by standing with those struggling for freedom from tyranny.  She brought much needed moral clarity to an institution that sorely lacks it, and stood up for allies such as Israel while condemning brutal regimes in places such as Iran, Cuba, and Venezuela.  I thank Ambassador Haley for her courageous advocacy for America and American values, and wish her the best on this new chapter.  She has served our country well, and she will be sorely missed.”
