Her Excellency Dina Kawar was appointed Jordanian ambassador to the U.S. in June 2016, having previously served as the permanent representative of Jordan to the U.N. and led the Jordanian delegation during its non-permanent membership of the UN Security Council as the first Arab woman to preside over the council.
