WASHINGTON (AA) - US President Joe Biden on Wednesday nominated Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of former President John F. Kennedy, to serve as the country's next ambassador to Australia.

Kennedy served as US ambassador to Japan from 2013-2017.

"She advanced the realignment of U.S. Forces in Okinawa, promoted women's empowerment in Japan, and increased student exchange between the U.S. and Japan," said the White House.

The 64-year-old said she looks forward to collaborating with the Australian government to strengthen the alliance between the two nations, improve global health and increase vaccine access during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to address the urgent climate crisis.

"I am excited to get to know the Australian people, learn about their fascinating country and share with them what I love most about America," said Kennedy in a statement through the presidential mansion.

Kennedy will need a Senate confirmation to take office.

Former President Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald on Nov. 22, 1963 while riding in his motorcade in Dallas, Texas.
