British Ambassador presents credentials
At a formal ceremony yesterday the new British Ambassador, Jonathan Allen, presented his credentials - the first new Ambassador to be received by President Plevneliev since he took office two weeks ago.
Jonathan Allen previously served as head of the East Africa department of the Foreign Office in London. Before that he established and led the government’s counter-terrorism communications unit.
Already the British Embassy in Sofia has excellent communication skills, and this looks set to continue: in his welcome (on Twitter) the Bulgarian Foreign Minister noted that the new Ambassador is also a ‘Twitter aficionado’.
