Nomination for US Ambassador due soon


California hotelier looks set to take role of US Ambassador to Slovenia

California hotelier Kelly Roberts looks likely to become the next US Ambassador to Slovenia. Rumour has it that the President's wife, Slovenian-born Melania Trump played a part in the nomination of Ms Roberts because she was keen that the new Ambassador be someone from the business world.

The current Ambassador is Brent Hartley, a career diplomat who has been in post since 2015. The US Embassy which is based in a magnificent old villa in Ljubljana is very active in promoting culture and business as well as looking after the welfare of US citizens in Slovenia.
