The government is also sending new ambassadors to Argentina, Bulgaria, Chile, the United Arab Emirates and Portugal. They are all old diplomats, for example Edit Bucsi-Szabó, who surprised Gabor Caleta with the police in 2019 and brought him home from Peru, is being flown to Chile from neighboring Argentina.

Five new ambassadors were appointed with the support of the Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee at its closed meeting on February 27 (also today, March 6, by the European Affairs Committee), on the proposal of the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter. Szijjártó, there will soon be a change of ambassadorial positions from Argentina to Chile to Portugal – discover hvg.hu. The five countries affected by change and the new ambassadors of the future:

  • Argentina, Buenos Aires – Peter Kvik
  • Bulgaria, Sofia – Miklos Poros
  • Chile, Santiago – edited by Bucsi-Szabó
  • United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi – Laurent Endrevy
  • Portugal, Lisbon – Fabián Emília

None of them are new to the world of diplomacy. For example, Peter Kvik, who is preparing to go to Argentina, was previously the Ambassador of Hungary to Egypt and Director General of the Middle East and North Africa Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Miklós Boros, who will operate the station in Sofia, was already the OSCE Ambassador in Vienna during his career in foreign affairs, which began in 1986, and headed the Hungarian foreign missions in Bratislava and Prague, but he was also a foreign policy advisor in the Office of the Head of State Laszlo Solium.

The aforementioned Kveck will replace Edit Bucsi-Szabó in Argentina, who will be transferred to neighboring Chile.

Lorand Endreffe, who was sent as ambassador to the United Arab Emirates, has been working in foreign affairs for 15 years and was previously ambassador to Colombia.
