James Warlick, American Ambassador in Sofia, said the rumors that he has been recalled early due to particular mistakes are not real, adding that he was leaving Bulgaria under a standard procedure.
“I have no scheduled departure date and I have not been recalled early due to something I have done. This is standard procedure for US Ambassadors. My wife is in the same situation. I have been here for 2 years and 9 months – this is standard. If I was to stay for 3 years and 3 months – this would be standard too,” Warlick said.
