Panamanian foreign minister resigns

PANAMA CITY, February 1, 2014 (AFP) – Panama’s top diplomat Fernando Nunez Fabrega resigned Friday, citing personal reasons, and his deputy was appointed to take the post.

President Ricardo Martinelli accepted Nunez’s resignation, saying he quit the post “to serve private and family commitments,” the presidential office said in a statement.

Nunez told reporters he plans to spend more time on his farm in the central province of Cocle and “rest.”

He was replaced by his one-time deputy, Francisco Alvarez de Soto, a fierce critic of leftist governments in the region.

Alvarez de Soto’s appointment makes him the fifth foreign minister in Martinelli’s conservative government.
