Solution

An ambassador is an honest man who lies abroad for the good of his country.

Explanation:

The pun, also called paronomasia, is a form of wordplay that exploits multiple meanings of a term, or of similar-sounding words, for an intended humorous or rhetorical effect. “An honest man who lies abroad”  is an example of pun. Therefore, 'An ambassador is an honest man who lies abroad for the good of his country.' is the apt answer.
