MOSCOW, April 20. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will accept credentials from 16 new foreign ambassadors on Wednesday, the Kremlin press service said.
Ambassadors from the United Kingdom, Japan, Gabon, Moldova, Thailand, Bolivia, India, Uzbekistan, Uruguay, Australia, Pakistan, Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan, Indonesia, the Tongolese Republic and Samoa have been invited to a ceremony traditionally held in Alexander Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace.
After presentation of the credentials to the Russian head of state, the activity of the newly arrived foreign ambassadors and permanent representatives of international organizations in Russia acquires an official status.
The ceremony of presenting credentials - symbolic messages from the heads of states - is usually held two or three times a year. Last time Putin held such an event on November 25 last year.
