The Councilor for Public Diplomacy, Stewart Tuttle, will assume as head of the United States diplomatic mission in Panama.
Tuttle will step in the shoes of Philip Laidlaw, who concluded this Wednesday his period as charge d'affaires of the American diplomatic mission to assume his new position as political adviser to the United States Special Operations Command.
Tuttle's arrival in Panama is scheduled for August. At the moment, the American Embassy will be under the leadership of Ryan Rowlands, as acting chief of mission.
The President of the United States, Donald Trump
, appointed Erik Paul Bethel in April; and its ratification is still awaited in the United States Senate.
