Britain’s ambassador to US resigns amid row over leaked emails

Thursday, July 11, 2019

London: Britain's ambassador to the US Kim Darroch resigned yesterday, amid ongoing diplomatic row over leaked emails critical of US President Donald Trump's administration.

The current situation is making it impossible for me to carry out my role as I would like," said Darroch, a career diplomat.

The UK Foreign Office confirmed Darroch's resignation.

Darroch is at the eye of a diplomatic storm after remarks he made about President Donald Trump's administration, and shared with UK officials in confidence, were leaked over the weekend. "Since the leak of official documents from this Embassy there has been a great deal of speculation surrounding my position and the duration of my remaining term as ambassador," Darroch wrote in a letter to the Foreign Office.

"I want to put an end to that speculation," he added.

In response to the letter, Simon McDonald, permanent under secretary and head of the diplomatic service, said Darroch had served a "long and distinguished career, with dignity, professionalism and class", BBC reported. "You are the best of us," Simon said, describing the leak as "malicious".
