Lincoln McCurdy, TCA president. “Turkey is quickly becoming one of the most influential players both regionally and globally, and the committee today recognized this in supporting the nomination of a highly qualified diplomat.” McCurdy said in a statement adding that they encourage the Senate to hold an immediate vote to confirm Ambassador Ricciardone’s nomination.
