Diplomacy Professor Martin Edwards on Fox News  

Martin EdwardsProfessor Martin Edwards of the School of Diplomacy and International Relations appeared on Fox News in an interview regarding the U.N. and some of the difficulties that Governor Nikki Haley, President-elect Trump's choice for U.S. ambassador to the U.N., may face as she enters the international fray. In the interview, Fox News reports:

"I think there's a lot of day-to-day issues that she doesn't know about -- the problem Nikki Haley is going to face is that many of the other countries' delegates are people who have been there for a very long time. Her counterpart from Russia has been there for 10 years. So I think hitting the ground running will be important," said Martin Edwards, a professor at the School of Diplomacy and International Relations at Seton Hall University.

Edwards is optimistic that Trump and the new secretary-general -- former Socialist Prime Minister of Portugal Antonio Guterres -- will be able to work together.
"He expressed a desire to reform the U.N. and he expressed a desire to build trust between the U.N. and member states so I think there's a lot to look forward to actually in this honeymoon period," Edwards said.

The interview initially ran on the national news show "Happening Now" and was then featured on other Fox News shows over the course of the next few days.

Fox News, "Trump could push for changes, cuts at UN."
