Indian-American Vedant Patel Gets New Role In US State Department Office


Vedant Patel previously served as an Assistant Press Secretary and Spokesperson for President Biden.

Washington:

Vedant Patel, the Principal Deputy Spokesperson for the US Department of State, has created history by becoming the first Indian-American to hold the daily State Department news conference that his fellow colleagues said did with the utmost professionalism and clear communication.

With State Department Spokesperson Ned Price on vacation, the 33-year-old Patel from California on Tuesday took the briefing room in the Foggy Bottom headquarters of the State Department to represent the country on foreign policy issues before the media.

During his briefing, Patel covered topics ranging from Russia’s unlawful invasion of Ukraine, negotiations around the JCPOA and Liz Truss becoming the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

His next in-person briefing is scheduled for Wednesday.

Vedant Patel made an impressive debut from the podium. “Kudos to” Vedant Patel on his podium debut, tweeted Matt Hill, senior Associate Communications Director at the White House.

“Representing the United States on the world stage is a huge responsibility, and Vedant did it with the utmost professionalism and clear communication,” Hill said.

Pili Tobar, former White House deputy communications director said: “It’s so great to see Vedant Patel at the podium”.

“Congrats my friend on an amazing debut,” she tweeted.

Mr Patel, who was born in Gujarat, is a graduate from the University of California, Riverside, and previously served as an Assistant Press Secretary and Spokesperson for President Biden in The White House.

Prior to that he served as a spokesperson on the Presidential Inaugural Committee and the Biden-Harris Transition.

He also held communications positions on the Biden Campaign both in the primary and general election.

Previously, Patel worked as Communications Director to Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal and Communications Director to Congressman Mike Honda.

Early this year, the then White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had described her as super talented.

“I often joke with him (Vedant Patel) that we give him easy assignments. We did not. It’s just because he’s super talented,” Psaki told reporters at her daily news conference early April.

“Vedant, I’ll say about him, he’s a beautiful writer. He’s a fast writer. I don’t know if that means he could be a wire reporter. I think he has a very promising career in government ahead of him,” she said and described his contributions as “amazing” for “everything he does to help me, help all of us, help the President every day”.
