According to a report by the ministry’s Human Resources Directorate – quoted by the online newspaper Juno 7 – several diplomats who have been in office for many years do not have the skills required for their functions.

Most of them are protégés of former parliamentarians, former presidents and ministers, and will therefore be recalled and dismissed without delay.
