U.S. Ambassador Appointed to State Department Position

June 9, 2009

The Obama Administration has asked Ambassador Nancy McEldowney to return to Washington to assume the position of Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State in the Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs.  She expects to take up her new assignment in early fall, and will remain in Bulgaria until late summer. 

The Administration is already working to identify a successor to Ambassador McEldowney.  There will be a Charge d’Affaires at the Embassy until the next Ambassador is in place.
