“A veteran career diplomat, the new spokesperson brings a wealth of experience to her position,” it said in a statement. “It has been four years since a DFA Secretary last designated a spokesperson, and 18 years since it last had a female spokesperson.”

Daza, who will be working with DFA’s Office of Public and Cultural Diplomacy, said she was “humbled” to be assigned for the role.
