Apostolic Nuncio: H.E. Mgr. Aldo Cavalli;  Ambassador of the Republic of India: H.E. Mr. J.S. Mukul; Ambassador of the Republic of Latvia: H.E. Ms. Ilze Rüse;  Ambassador of the Slovak Republic: H.E.

On 20 November 2015 Mrs. Shida Bliek, founder of Diplomat Club Wassenaaar, presented each Ambassador with a symbolic Dutch decoration and in his speech Mayor Jan Hoekema expressed the hope that the newly appointed ambassadors would be able to take time from their busy schedules to enjoy the culture, countryside and cuisine of the Netherlands.  He also wished them success in their professional duties and trusted they would enjoy their stay in this country. They were then whisked away to receive their welcome certificates and pose for a group photo, but returned in time to join the superb buffet dinner and the excellent Georgian wines so generously provided by the Ambassador of Georgia, Mr. Konstantine Surguladze.
