Bulgarian Govt Nominates Another Five New Ambassadors

The government nominated new ambassadors in Spain, Russia, Syria, Morocco and Pakistan.

The nominations will be sent to President Rossen Plevneliev who, on a motion from the government, appoints and removes the heads of the country's diplomatic and permanent missions at international organisations.

Konstantin Kodzhabashev, who currently serves as consul general in Valencia, is the nominee for the ambassadorial office in Spain, the state-run Bulgarian News Agency (BTA) reported. Rumen Pironchev is nominated to head the embassy in Pakistan, while the chief of the Bulgarian representation to the EU, Boiko Kotsev, is the nominee for Bulgarian ambassador to Russia. The nominee for ambassador in Morocco is Boryana Simeonova, who has been heading the foreign ministry's state protocol directorate since 1998.

This is the second round of ambassadorial nominations, after on January 25 the government came up with twenty-four names, including two current deputy foreign ministers. Back then, Emilia Kraleva was nominated to replace Andrey Karaslavov as Bulgarian ambassador to Greece.

The nominations come as a part of a process of changing the face of Bulgaria's diplomacy abroad.
