Azita Raji: US envoy to Sweden

The US Senate has conformed the appointment of former JP Morgan banker Azita Raji as its new ambassador to Sweden, after presidential hopeful Ted Cruz ended his senate blockade on “political nominees”.

Raji, who fled Iran as a teenager, has been a prominent supporter of US president Barack Obama since leaving the financial sector in 2008, bringing in more than $3 million in campaign funding and serving as the President’s national vice-chair for finance. She will be Sweden’s first female US ambassador.
