On Monday 9 December, farewell audiences were held at the Royal Palace of Stockholm for ambassadors Mr Kire Illioski from Macedonia, Dr Abdulrahman Gdala from Saudi Arabia and Mr Ricardo Quintero Nassar from Panama.
Just as an ambassador is received by The King on assuming his or her position in Sweden at a formal audience, a similar — albeit somewhat less formal — meeting is also held when the ambassador returns home again. Find out more about formal audiences here.
