From an early age, Radev devoted himself to diplomacy. In 1913, he participated in the conference which led to the signing of the Treaty of Bucharest; he remained a Bulgarian minister plenipotentiary in Bucharest until 1916. After Romania joined World War I, he was moved to Berne, Switzerland. In 1917, he handed in his resignation, left Switzerland and joined the Bulgarian Army as a soldier of the Macedonian-Adrianopolitan Volunteer Corps. Towards the end of the war, Radev was one of the Bulgarian representatives who signed the Thessaloniki Armistice. After the war, Radev was Bulgarian minister plenipotentiary in The Hague, Ankara, Washington, D.C., London and Brussels. He was the first Bulgarian delegate to the League of Nations in Geneva. In 1923, he married the Bulgarian painter, Bistra Vinarova and the couple subsequently had one son, Traian Radev (bg).
Simeon Radev died aged 88 in the Bulgarian capital Sofia on 15 February 1967, only several days after his last book Early Memories was ready for printing. Reportedly, his last words were:
"Did I give anything to Bulgaria?"
