The U.S. Senate has confirmed Air Force Gen. Paul Selva as the next vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Air Force Times reported Tuesday.

Jeff Schogol writes Selva most recently served as military adviser to former State Secretary Hillary Clinton.

Selva identified the countries he considers as threats to the U.S. during his July 14 confirmation hearing, according to the report.

“I would put the threats to this nation in the following order: Russia, China, Iran, North Korea and all of the organizations that have grown around the ideology that was articulated by al-Qaida early at the turn of this century,” Selva told lawmakers then.

Lawmakers also confirmed Air Force Gen. Darren McDew to succeed Selva as the next head of U.S. Transportation Command, Schogol reports.

McDew previously served as the head of Air Mobility Command, Air Force Times reports.
