President Igor Dodon is reshuffling Moldova’s diplomatic service, recalling and appointing new ambassadors abroad. On June 5, Dodon recalled Moldova’s ambassadors to Canada, Austria, and Romania. 

Previously, Dodon appointed new ambassadors to seven European states. Currently, Moldova has new ambassadors in Turkey, Latvia, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Portugal, Poland, Ireland, and Italy. 

The decision to reshuffle Moldova’s diplomatic service comes months after Dodon criticized Moldova’s ambassadors for wasting public money abroad. Moldova’s diplomatic service is still developing. Subsequently, Moldova has a small number of ambassadors by profession. Most of Moldova’s ambassadors are coming from the political field, being former deputies or members of governments.
