Baku is concerned about the departure of U.S. Ambassador Matthew Bryza
The U.S. ambassador Matthew Bryza has ended his diplomatic mission in Azerbaijan, and left for Washington. Bryza served in Baku for a year. He was appointed the U.S. ambassador to Azerbaijan in December last year by U.S. President Barack Obama, even bypassing the Senate because the candidacy of Bryza was met by senators with hostility.
In the United States, secondary appointment of ambassadors by the President without the consent of the upper house of Congress is not permitted. The interim U.S. attorney is temporary Adam Sterling.
Deputy of the "Yeni Azerbaijan" Mubariz Gurbanli said that he wanted to continue the mission of Matthew Bryza as ambassador and praised the work of American diplomat.
Member of working group on interparliamentary relations Azerbaijan - US Asim Mollazade said: "If a place of U.S. ambassador is vacant, it is seriously harming the interests of the United States, not of Azerbaijan", "NIRA Aksakal" reported.
