The King holds farewell audiences

On Thursday 6 December, farewell audiences were held at the Royal Palace of Stockholm.

The ambassadors who are now leaving Sweden are Armenia's ambassador Artak Apitonian, Azerbaijan's ambassador Adish Mammadov, Brazil's ambassador Marcos Pinta Gama and Lithuania's ambassador Algimantas Rimkunas.

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.
