The newly sworn-in president Joe Biden inducted another Pakistani American, Salman Ahmed, into his foreign policy team, said a statement.
Salman served as head of strategic planning in the Obama National Security Council, is joining the US State Department as director of policy planning.
Biden announced a Pakistani American, Ali Zaidi, to be joining his team as Deputy National Climate Adviser, last month.
Mr. Ahmed was chief of staff of the US Mission to the United Nations and senior policy adviser to the US Permanent Representative to the United Nations.
Salman holds a master’s degree in international relations from the University of Cambridge, and a Bachelor of Science in economics from New York University’s Stern School of Business.
