Ukraine's Poroshenko Proposes Envoy to Germany as Foreign Minister

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Wednesday nominated Pavlo Klimkin, currently ambassador to Germany, as his candidate for foreign minister, the parliamentary website said.

Klimkin, 47, who will replace Andriy Deshchytsia if parliament supports the nomination, is an experienced pro-European diplomat who has played a big part in talks on a political association agreement with the European Union.
