President Bill Clinton appointed Alfred Moses as his first ambassador to Romania (1994 – 1997), where Ambassador Moses played a key role in helping the country move from its Communist past to democracy and to establish a free economy. In his new book, Bucharest Diary: An American Ambassador’s Journey, Moses includes first-hand accounts of the diplomacy, both public and private, that helped Romania recover from four decades of Communist rule. As ambassador, he facilitated negotiations between Romania and neighboring Hungary and Ukraine that resulted in treaties resolving border and other disputes. As a result, Romania was invited to join NATO and the European Union, and currently has the fastest growing economy in Eastern Europe. For his efforts, Moses was awarded the Marc Cruce medal by the Romanian Government, the only American to receive this distinction.

Moses is Chairman of UN Watch, past President of the American Jewish Committee, the author of several books, and also served as special counsel to President Carter (1980 – 1981) and special presidential envoy for the Cyprus conflict (1999 – 2001).
