Rubinstein replaces Robert Ford, the former US ambassador to Syria, who resigned as special envoy last month. “There’s no denying the tough challenge that Syria represents for any diplomat,” Kerry said in a statement. “Special Envoy Rubinstein’s leadership and counsel will be vital as we redouble our efforts to support the moderate opposition, shore up our partners, counter the rise of extremism that threatens us all, and address the devastating humanitarian crisis and its impact on the neighboring states,” Kerry said.
