Newsline: Article ruffles feathers of Dominican, US ambassadors

The U.S. Embassy called an article published in outlet Listin Diario by journalist and diplomat Cesar Medina, “completely baseless and false speculation,” referring to a recent visit to president Danilo Medina by US State Dept. deputy secretary Juan Gonzalez. In the letter to Listin editor-in-chief Miguel Franjul, the embassy said González is a person who’d never disrespect any ambassador or colleague, as it affirms Medina suggested in his article. The article by Cesar Medina, the Dominican ambassador to Panama, is the latest ruffling of the feathers resulting from Washington’s designation of the openly gay envoy James W. Brewster, who like Medina is an outspoken diplomat.
