MOSCOW, November 7 (Itar-Tass) — Chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, John F. Kerry will in most likelihood take the position of the Secretary of State, Dr. Sergei Rogov, the director of the Institute for the U.S. and Canada studies reporting to the Russian Academy of Sciences said Wednesday.
“When well-informed people discuss the likely candidates to the post of Secretary of State, they usually name the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, John Kerry, and the U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice,” he said at a news conference in Moscow.
“It’s worthwhile saying that John Kerry is generally pondering a positive agenda for the U.S.-Russian relations, while Susan Rice has made undiplomatic assessments of Russia on a number of occasions in the wake of the conflict in Syria and an abrupt change of rhetoric on her part is scarcely to be expected.
“Rice’s chances /for getting to the post/ have waned noticeably enough after the situation around the murder of the U.S. Ambassador in Benghazi,” Dr. Rogov said. “She made unrewarding statements in that connection, in which she claimed the attack on the Ambassador was a spontaneous manifestation and not a terrorist act.”
“That’s why I think her chances are not really big,” he said.
Dr. Rogov believes along with it that the outgoing Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, has apparently decided to run for the White House in the presidential election of 2016.
