PGMA receives new German, Canadian envoys

Manila (15 September) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo accepted yesterday the credentials of the new German and Canadian ambassadors to the Philippines in brief rites held at the Rizal Hall of Malacanang.

German Ambassador Christian Ludwig Weber Lortsch and Canadian Ambassador Robert Desjardins received warm arrival honors at the Malacanang Palace grounds before meeting the President.

"I accept your letter of credentials. I look forward to your fruitful tour of duty here. Welcome to the Philippines," the President told the two envoys.

Lortsch was accompanied by Pit Heltman, deputy chief of mission of the German Embassy; Markus Tschan, 3rd secretary; Brigit Fisel-Roestle and Linda Tippkaemper, both attachés.

"I have the honor to present my letter of credentials to you," Lortsch told the President. "I feel in deep privilege to serve one of the oldest and liveliest democracies in Asia, the Philippines' democracy which is very respectable and reliable. We both enjoy the political, cultural, diplomatic and excellent relations."

Desjardins, on the other hand, looks forward to serving the Philippines and the Filipino people.

"It is a great honor and privilege to serve your people and it is my pleasure to further strengthen the diplomatic relations between the Philippines and Canada," Desjardins told the Chief Executive.

Present at the presentation rites was Foreign Affairs Secretary Alberto Romulo. (OPS) [top]
