Difference between embassy and consulate
A consulate acts as a representative of a particular state, under the leadership of a consul. Unlike an embassy that serves as a representative of a country's government, consulates mainly focus on representing the interests of their citizens in the host country.
According to local statements, the 63-year-old honorary consul himself fell. Emergency services from several rescue vehicles immediately took care of the seriously injured man. A special stretcher is used to support the spine of the state representative.
