Baghdad The Parliamentary Foreign Relations Committee identified the mechanism for selecting Iraq’s ambassadors, noting that the new list included 70 ambassadors.
Committee member Ala Talabani said in a statement to the official agency (INA): “The Committee on Foreign Relations studied the names of the candidates, after conducting interviews with them to choose the most appropriate.”
She indicated that “some of the names proposed for ambassadorial positions require study by the elites and public opinion to reconsider them,” noting that “there are qualified people who should not be burned with unqualified names that can be reconsidered.”
She stressed that “the committee is not the one who nominated the names of the ambassadors, but rather the political blocs, but these names went to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs through the Foreign Relations Committee,” explaining that “the list includes 70 ambassadors, of whom 35 are candidates from the political blocs and there are 35 candidates from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs who are from the diplomatic corps.”
