Czech diplomacy will send new ambassadors to Baghdad and Bucharest in the coming months.

"I am glad that we are sending career diplomats abroad who understand the territories in depth and have proven their skills and experience at the Czech diplomatic headquarters in Prague. I wish both Jan Šnaidauf and Martin Košatka every success," said Foreign Minister Jan Lipavský.

Jan Šnaidauf joined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2008, worked for more than three years at the Brussels headquarters of the European External Action Service, where he dealt with Middle East issues. From 2014 to 2018 he worked as Head of the Political, Press and Information Section at the EU Delegation to Bosnia and Herzegovina, and for the last four years he headed the Foreign Policy Analysis and Planning Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Martin Košatka has worked for Czech diplomacy since 1994. One of the most experienced career diplomats, he has worked in multilateral and bilateral diplomacy, serving as Ambassador to Spain between 2004 and 2009 and Ambassador to Croatia between 2012 and 2016. Since 2017, he has been Director of the Department of South and Southeast Europe at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Both of them already have the consent of the receiving country, the so-called agrément. Jan Šnaidauf will be heading to Iraq in September and Martin Kosatka will start in Romania in August.
