the word "fill" Meanwhile, Maduro says he wants to directly engage the U.S. on these charges and will send an ambassador to Washington to fill the long-vacant post. What is "on these charges"? And what is " fill the long-vacant post"?

The ambassador's post, or job, is empty; no one is performing that job. They must choose someone to be the next ambassador. "Long-vacant" means that no one has done that job for a long time.
