Diplomatic missions of Vishwamitra
The Ministry of External Affairs has numerous diplomats assigned to various states, regions and organisations; these are appointed by the Chief Ambassador on the advice of the First Ambassador, who through holding that office holds responsibility for relations with all nations and peoples that do not have a specifically designated diplomat. The function of ambassadors and consuls in countries which do not recognise Vishwamitra is simply to raise awareness of the State's existence within the country they have been assigned to and to represent the Empire to regional or national authorities should it be necessary.
Ambassadors are diplomats assigned to a sovereign state, whereas consuls-general and consuls are assigned to a specific region or city within a sovereign state. The majority of ambassadors do not have embassies over which the State has claimed extraterritoriality.
