What is an Embassy?

 An embassy is located right in the heart of the capital city of the receiving state, and it is headed by an ambassador, and houses the offices where representatives work.  The reason why embassies are located in the capital city is to make them easily accessible to their citizens in case of an emergency, such as during a war. All the main diplomatic talks between two countries are held in embassies especially when the discussions involve sensitive matters like wars and trade. The ambassador plays a substantial role in all of this as he/she is the spokesperson of the foreign country. Their work is to protect the interests of their land in the receiving country as well as acting as the intermediaries during negotiations. They report directly to their presidents back at home. (
