Post your answer

an ambassador is the head of an embassy.
an ambassador IS also a diplomat, but he or she holds the highest rank in a diplomatic corps.

Ambassador is the representative or alter ego of the President of the country he represents; while diplomat is the representative for economic reresentation in the country he is sent.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Every ambassador is a diplomat, but not every diplomat is an ambassador.

Ambassador is the head of the diplomatic mission, all other staff at an embassy are diplomats.

In short, a diplomat is any person appointed by his/her country officially to conduct duties or negotiations on behalf of his/her country in another country, and therefore enjoys certain privilages and immunities.

An ambassador is appointed to head an embassy in another country (or to represent in the UN) but is not the only diplomat at the embassy. He's "da boss".

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

An ambassador is appointed to serve as the official representative of his or her own country. He or She is normally the top ranking government representative stationed in a foreign capital.

A diplomat, by definition of course :), is anyone involved in diplomacy, or the conducting negotiations between representatives of nations.

The Ambassador is a diplomat him or herself and the HIGHEST ranking diplomat in a foriegn country. Generally speaking, underneath the Ambassador are (in order from highest to lowest):

* Minister
* Minister-Counselor
* Counselor
* First Secretary
* Second Secretary
* Third Secretary
* Attaché
* Assistant Attaché
* Chargé d'affaires

They are all collectively known as the Diplomatic Corps.

Hope this helps! :)
