President Yoweri Museveni on Thursday received letters of credence from six new envoys accredited to Uganda. Museveni pledged to enhance bilateral relations with their countries.

The new ambassadors from Russia, Angola, Finland, Indonesia, Argentina and Bangladesh presented their credentials during different ceremonies at the State House in Entebbe.

The Russian envoy, Sergey Nikolayevich Shishkin, was the first to present his letters of credence. The envoy, who joined diplomatic service in 1972, pledged to improve the relationship between his country and Uganda.

He expressed his desire for Museveni to visit Russia. The Angolan ambassador, Ambrosio Lukoki, pledged to strengthen the existing ties between Uganda and Angola.

The Finnish envoy, Heli Sirve, conveyed greetings from the President of Finland, Tarja Halonen, to Museveni and the people of Uganda.

The President later received credentials of the Indonesian envoy, Budi Bowoleksono, who pledged to promote economic ties between the two countries.

Argentina’s Daniel Chubuku, assured the President that he would bolster the good relations between Uganda and his country. A.K.M. Shamsudin, the Bangladesh envoy, conveyed warm greetings from the President of Bangladesh, Mohammad Zillur Rahman and briefed Museveni on the elections held in Bangladesh in December.

Shamsudin attributed the success of the elections to the modern technology where voters’ fingerprints were used to avoid malpractices. Ugandans will be going to the polls to elect a president and MPs in 2011.
