Spainís King Felipe VI Welcomes 7 New Ambassadors to Madrid

MADRID Ė Seven new ambassadors presented on Thursday their diplomatic credentials to Spanish King Felipe VI at the Royal Palace in Madrid.

Following diplomatic protocol, ambassadors from Australia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Indonesia, Kazakhstan and Serbia individually presented the appropriate documentation to the king.

Upon arrival, the ambassadors were met with interpretations of their respective national anthems, as well as formation of 200 royal guards.

The diplomatic process is a constitutional duty for the Spanish Head of State, who dressed in royal military attire for the event.

Presenting their credentials were the new ambassadors from the Czech Republic, Ivan Jancarek; Denmark, Jens August Kisling; Germany, Wolfgang Hermann Dold, Indonesiaís Hermono Hermono and first-time foreign ambassador Katarina Lalic Smajevic of Serbia.

The Spanish monarch also received credentials from Kazakhstanís Konstantin Zhigalov, who previously headed the Central Asian nationís diplomatic mission in Canada.

The king visited the Kazakh capital last year as a guest of honor at the opening of the international exposition Expo 2017 Astana.

Also handing over diplomatic accreditation was Australiaís first female indigenous foreign ambassador, Julie-Ann Guivarra.

Once the ambassadors had been officially presented to King Felipe VI, they attended a private meeting alongside Spainís minister for foreign affairs in which they discussed bilateral relations.

The diplomats were then transported by carriage, one by one, to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a ceremony that dates back to the 18th Century.
