US downgrades diplomatic status of EU representation

STEPANAKERT,  JANUARY 8, ARTSAKHPRESS: “We don't exactly know when they did it, because they conveniently forgot to notify us. I can confirm that this has not been well received in Brussels,” Mr. O’Sullivan, who has served as the EU’s ambassador to Washington since 2014 revealed.

According to diplomats, a reduction in the position of the mission from a member state’s diplomatic status to the level of an international organization could occur in October-November 2018.

One of the EU diplomats working in Washington stressed that in this case it’s not just a protocol.
