AI taking over the jobs of diplomats and envoys is really very difficult because they deal with human phycology to come up with plans to mediate tense situations between countries by mutual understanding and negotiations, which cannot be performed by robots as they don't regard feeling and emotions of various people involved in the matter to take a right decision.
