List of 18 ambassadors sent to president for confirmation
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia has sent a list of the candidates of new ambassadors of Georgia to various countries to the president of Georgia for confirmation. The document will be sent to the parliament after the president signs it and if there are no procedural obstructions, the parliament will discuss and approve the candidacies a week after receiving the list.
This time, Georgia will have new ambassadors in 18 states. Some of the previous ambassadors were dismissed by the ministry, some resigned and others have their term expired.
The parliamentary minority suspects the change of ambassadors may be tied with the change of foreign policy course of the country. The candidacies of three ambassadors have been already announced - Eka Siradze-Delone will represent Georgia in France and UNESCO, Davit Aftsiauri to China and Mikheil Ukleba to Ukraine.
