The Embassy of the United States of America in Rabat wrote on its Twitter account: “Congratulating the new American Ambassador of Morocco Boniet Taloar on being sworn in! We wish him and his team to the United States Embassy well in their efforts to strengthen the partnership between the United States and the Moroccan kingdom “.
US President Joe Biden last March proposed Bonet Taloar as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the Kingdom of Morocco.
According to a White House statement, Talwar held senior positions in national security and foreign policy at the State Department, the White House and the U.S. Senate.
Talwar is a Senior Adviser to the Department of State, while he previously served as Assistant Secretary of State for Political and Military Affairs, Special Assistant to the President, Director of the National Security Council and Senior Officer of the United States Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
The White House biography states that Talwar was a senior researcher at the Asia Society Policy Institute, a visiting researcher at the University of Pennsylvania Center, an adviser to the non-governmental organization “Inter Medet” for Conflict Resolution, and a non-resident professor at the Georgetown University Center for Security Studies.
Talwar, a native of Washington, D.C., received a bachelor’s degree in engineering from Cornell University and a master’s degree in international affairs from Columbia University, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
The diplomat himself was one of Barack Obama’s senior advisers on the Middle East and contributed to opening talks with Iran before the nuclear deal.
