The President held a cocktail party for the envoys during which he and the envoys toasted to the good relations between Uganda and their countries
President Yoweri Museveni on Tuesday received credentials from four ambassadors at State House Entebbe.
The ambassadors from Brazil (Fernando Estellita), Ethiopia (Alemtsehay), Saharawi (Mohammed Bachir) and Vatican (Luigi Bianco) presented their credentials in the presence of junior foreign affairs minister, Okello Oryem and a number of government technocrats.
Clad in a loose-fitting white shirt, a jovial Museveni held a cocktail party for the envoys during which he and the envoys toasted to the good relations between Uganda and their countries.
Of the four countries, Ethiopia, one of the only two countries in Africa never to be colonised, has had the longest diplomatic relations with Uganda.
As for Brazil, Uganda is exploring the possibility of opening up a mission in Rio de Janeiro to serve the entire Latin America.
Currently, Uganda’s mission in Havana, Cuba serves the Caribbean and Latin America. However, the decision by Brazil to open a fully-fledged mission in Uganda might be a harbinger of greater diplomatic cooperation and trade between the two countries.
