YEREVAN. – Hraparak daily of the Republic of Armenia (RA) writes: The agrément for [National Assembly (NA) majority] My Step faction leader Lilit Makunts to be appointed RA Ambassador to the US has been received for several weeks already; that is, the American government has agreed to accept her [as Armenian ambassador to the US]. And she is [now] waiting for the dissolution of the [current] NA in order to leave for Washington.
As Makunts' landing-force nomination for the post of RA ambassador to the US had caused outrage among the MFA veterans, the government decided to establish a "ceasefire" with foreign ministry staff and embassy candidates, and on that ground, Ruben Kharazyan (who has been working at the MFA for almost 30 years) was appointed RA Ambassador to Turkmenistan. Several more professionals like him will be appointed in the near future.
Also, the government has promised to no longer rudely interfere in the internal affairs of this established institution.
Let us remind that the revolutionaries’ fiery intervention in the internal life of the MFA started in 2018, appointing party "diplomat" Ruben Rubinyan as deputy foreign minister.
