India appoints its new ambassador to Cuba

New Delhi, Mar 18 (Prensa Latina) India today announced the appointment of T. Armstrong Changsan, currently deputy secretary of its Ministry of External Affairs, as the next ambassador to the Republic of Cuba.

The new representative of the Indian government for Cuba is expected to take up the post shortly, the Foreign Ministry said in a brief note.

His service record as a diplomat, spanning more than two decades of experience, reflects previous postings in Japan, Nigeria and South Africa, including that of ambassador-at-large to Iceland, his last such assignment, according to Foreign Service sources.

In India, he served in the United Nations Economic and Social Division and for four years as Regional Passport Officer dealing with the Northeastern States.

In December 2021, he took over as assistant secretary and director of the division of the Foreign Office responsible for managing passports of Indian citizens both within and outside the country.

Changsan will occupy the post vacated in November 2023 by Sarvesvaran Janakiraman, who concluded his diplomatic mission in Cuba with valuable contributions to the strengthening of political relations, friendship and cooperation, according to Cuban authorities.
