Serhat TUNAR -TDO- The interim government, which took office in Bolivia after President Morales resigned after failing to withstand a raid by the military and opposition, appointed an ambassador to the United States after 11 years.
According to the Bolivian foreign ministry's social media account, the interim government's Foreign Minister Karen Longaric has appointed Bolivia's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Walter Oscar Serrate, to the post of Ambassador to the United States.
In a statement, Foreign Minister Karen Longaric appointed Ambassador Walter Oscar Serrate Cuellar, Bolivia's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, as Bolivia's ambassador to the United States.
Serrate's appointment to take office requires approval from the House of senators, where Evo Morales supporters are majority.
In 2008, under Morales' leadership, Bolivia returned its ambassador to the United States for meddling in the country's internal affairs, and The Washington administration responded in the same way to Bolivia.
As it is known, an agreement was signed in 2010 to improve relations between the two countries, but it failed to produce results.
