#Ambassador: Syed Akbaruddin - The next Indian envoy in London?

The respected spokesperson of India’s Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has been tipped to become the country’s next High Commissioner to London.

Syed Akbaruddin will vacate his post on 18 April and is “likely” to replace incumbent Ranjan Mathai when Mr Mathai completes his term at the end of 2015, according to sources in Delhi.

Mr Akbaruddin, who has been an Indian Foreign Service officer for three decades, has risen to prominence over the past 10 months accompanying Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his numerous overseas trips and winning over the media with his professionalism and accessibility.

Akbaruddin is considered an expert on West Asian issues and has served in a variety of roles both within the MEA and global organizations such as the International Atomic Energy Agency.

He will be replaced as MEA spokesperson by another widely respected career diplomat, Vikas Swarup, who is best known as the author of ‘Q&A’ which was adapted by British filmmaker Danny Boyle into the 2008 box office sensation ‘Slumdog Millionaire’.
