27 neue Chefs in belgischer Diplomatie im Ausland

Auf Vorschlag des Außenministers Didier Reynders hat der König die Ernennung von 27 neuen Chefs belgischer diplomatischer Posten im Ausland abgesegnet. Die Ernennungen der bilateralen Posten sind definitiv, sobald die betroffenen Gastländer ihre Zustimmung gegeben haben.

Für die ständigen Vertreter bei internationalen Organisationen wird eine vorausgehende Akkreditierung verlangt. Die neuen Chefposten werden in den Sommermonaten angetreten.

So wird der derzeitige Botschafter in Rom, Vincent Mertens, der neue Botschafter von Paris. Der heutige Botschafter von Paris, Patrick Vercauteren wechselt wiederum als Botschafter nach Rom.
