Moldova’s Ambassador to the United States Presented His Credentials
Moldova’s Ambassador to the United States, Eugeniu Caras, former adviser of President Igor Dodon, presented his credentials to U.S. President Donald J. Trump, during an official ceremony held at the White House.
On July 17, Moldova’s new Ambassador to the United States, Eugeniu Caras, presented his credentials to U.S. President Donald J. Trump, during an official ceremony held at the White House.
Prior to his appointment as Moldova’s Ambassador to the United States, Caras worked as a foreign policy adviser for Dodon.
Previously, Eugen Caras worked as head of the Mission of Moldova to the European Union. He also held the position of Moldova’s Ambassador to Brussels.
At the same time, Caras worked in diplomatic missions in Turkey, Ukraine, but also in the U.S.A.
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.
