The new appointment will be announced by mid August, 2012.
The previous ambassador, Mimi Castillo Prado, was removed last year when Nicaragua made an illegal incursion in to Costa Rica over the San Juan river border dispute.
According to Castillo, “it is time to resume diplomatic work in the neighboring country.”
The foreign minister also said that the new ambassador will be an official of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Nicaragua Costa Rica relationship has been further strained this year, when Costa Rica deported several Nicaraguan families that had set up small farm operation on the Costa Rica side of the border and further disputes regarding the Nicaragua Canal Project
