ambassador


ambassador
A public officer clothed with high diplomatic powers, commissioned by a government to transact the international business of his government with a foreign government.
An Ambassador of the United States is the personal representative of the President and reports to the President through the Secretary of State. Ambassadors have full responsibility for implementing the U.S. foreign policy by any and all U.S. Government personnel within their country of assignment, except those under military commands. Their responsibilities include negotiating agreements between the United States and the host country, explaining and disseminating official U.S. policy, and maintaining cordial relations with that country's government and people. 22 U.S.C.A. No. 3942.
A distinction was formerly made between Ambassadors Extraordinary, who were sent to conduct special business or to remain for an indeterminate period, and Ambassadors Ordinary, who were sent on permanent missions; but this distinction is no longer observed.
