Can a person(a politician specifically) be described as diplomatic as well as forthright at the same time? Or do the two attributes contrast with each other?


In general the two attributes contrast one another. In other words a diplomatic statement would be a "flowery" forthright statement. But of course for a particular statement it depends. A particular statement could be diplomatic as well as forthright.
