Nancy Powell leaves India, Kathleen Stephens to be interim envoy

    NEW DELHI (TIP): US Ambassador to India Nancy Powell on Thursday, May 22, headed back to her country after an eventful stint here and will be replaced temporarily early next month by Kathleen Stephens, a career diplomat. Powell, 67, who assumed charge as US Ambassador here in April, 2012, had announced ending of her tenure in India in March this year.

    Stephens will serve as the charge until a new permanent ambassador is nominated and confirmed by the US Senate. President Barack Obama has not yet nominated anyone for this important diplomatic posting. A career foreign service officer, Stephens is expected to arrive in New Delhi early June. She was US ambassador to South Korea from 2008 to 2011 and previously served in senior positions in Washington, Asia and Europe.
