Jeanne Shaheen on Foreign Policy

Previously Democratic Governor (NH); candidate for Senate 2008


Rebuild our alliances & restore our moral authority

Q: What role should our nation play in the world today?

A: I believe the United States needs to reestablish itself as a world leader that brings together countries to find solutions for the world’s military, environmental, and economic issues. We need to rebuild our alliances and we need to restore our moral authority in the world by making it clear that we will abide by the Geneva Conventions.

Reform the UN but pay US dues

Q: Do you support the full and timely payment of U.S. assessments to the United Nations and its special fund for peacekeeping missions?

A: Yes.

Q: Will you oppose legislation that withholds U.S. dues to the U.N.?

A: While I do believe that there are reforms that need to be made at the UN, and I will press hard to see that those reforms are achieved, I do not believe withholding U.S. dues have proven an effective method for achieving these objectives.
