Latvian Foreign Affairs Minister Edgars Rinkevics and Unity Saeima faction chairperson Solvita Aboltina intend to discuss the politician’s return to the diplomatic service, said the minster’s advisor Martins Dregeris.

At the same time, Rinkevics said it is not possible to provide more detailed comments on this matter. He added that Aboltina has considerable experience working in the foreign affairs service. Aboltina also worked as the director of Foreign Affairs Ministry’s Consular Department before she began her political career. There have also been precedents in which politicians had returned to the foreign affairs service to perform diplomatic duties, which includes Foreign Ministry’s Inspector General Maris Riekstins and Latvia’s ambassador to France – Imants Liegis.

«This is nothing new, because the foreign affairs service is open for ex-diplomats. We never comment candidates until all national procedures are complete and we receive approval from other countries in regards to ambassadors,» Dregeris explains.

He also emphasizes that a person first has to return to the foreign service. Only then the Foreign Affairs ministry’s committee will assess the person’s skills and decide on their return. «It is too soon to speak of specific countries and posts before a person is official back,» added the minister’s advisor.

As previously reported, Aboltina allows for the possibility of putting down her mandate before the end of the 12th Saeima’s term.
