Ambassador Munu Receives 8 Diplomats, Bids Farewell to 2
Sierra Leone’s Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, H.E Wusu B. Munu, yesterday joined over 50 Heads of Missions in Riyadh to receive 8 newly posted envoys and bade farewell to 2.
The short, but spectacularly colourful ceremony, took place at Tawiq Palace in the fortified Diplomatic Quarter (DQ), eight kilometers from downtown Riyadh.
Bidding farewell to His Excellencies on behalf of his colleagues, Ambassador of Burkina Faso and Dean of the African Diplomatic Corps in Riyadh, H.E Omar Diawara described Mr. Said Bin Ali Salim Al Kalbani of the Sultanate of Orman and H.E., Dr. Seyed Mohammad Hosseini of the Islamic Republic of Iran, as “close friends who have had very good working relationship with the diplomatic community in Riyadh.”
Mr. Diawara, however, consoled the departing Ambassadors for the fact that they had come and discharged their functions honourably.
“It’s a sad moment to bid farewell to very good and hardworking friends. But I wish you luck in your new endeavors,’’ Ambassador Diawara said painfully.
The outgoing envoys informed their colleagues of the hospitality given to them under the leadership of the Custodian of the two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz throughout their stay in the KSA.
They also thanked their colleagues for the cooperation and support rendered them throughout their stay in office.Â Mr. Kalbani and Dr. Hosseini served 12 and 3 years, respectively before their recall. Presentation of gifts climaxed the ceremony.
In another engagement, the Ambassadors of Japan, Venuezuella, Singapore, Denmark, Canada, Pakistan, Ukraine and Madagascar were received by their colleagues in the diplomatic fold.
