Latvian President Egils Levits presented his country’s new Ambassador to Georgia, Edīte Medne, on Tuesday, replacing Ingrīda Levrence in the role.
In her social media post following the official presentation at Riga Castle, Madne said that her country would remain a “trustworthy partner” for Georgia and expressed her support for Georgia’s Euro-Atlantic aspirations.
“I am committed to the promotion of economic and cultural ties between Latvia and Georgia, and intend on working closely together with the Latvian diaspora”, she said.
Medne's diplomatic career began in 1995.
During her career, she has served at the Permanent Representation of Latvia to the EU, the Administration Director’s Office, and also by heading the Property and Investment Policy Department and the Diplomatic Facilities Department.
