SOFIA, Bulgaria — Bulgaria's foreign minister on Wednesday stated that the government plans to recall ambassadors who served as agents of the former communist secret service.

Nikolai Mladenov said on Wednesday the government will also propose amendments to the Diplomatic Service Act to bar former agents from being appointed as diplomats.

Mladenov's remarks came a day after a panel investigating communist-era police files published the names of 192 leading diplomats who had worked for the secret service.

Among them are the current ambassadors to the United Nations, Russia, Japan, Germany, Britain, Italy, Spain, Greece, Turkey and Portugal.

The panel had probed 462 former and current Bulgarian ambassadors and consuls.
