Diplomatic relations are between Govts, not individuals

Dear Editor,
The letter to the Indian Minister on the Administration’s choice of ambassador to that country concluded that should the appointment be confirmed, it would sour relations between the two countries.
Relations were not soured for five long and arduous months between the two countries, when the nation was held hostage.   Further, diplomatic relations are between states and governments, not individuals.
The suggestion is debased.
