Marcos receives credentials of four new envoys to Phl

President Bongbong Marcos on Thursday received the credentials of four new diplomats assigned to the Philippines.

At the Malacañang Palace, Marcos accepted the credentials of Ambassadors Christian Halaas Lyster of Norway, Franz-Michael Skjold Mellbin of Denmark, Niyazi Evren Akyol of the Republic of Türkiye, and Miguel Utray Delgado of the Kingdom of Spain.

Moreover, the chief executive thanked Qatar Ambassador to the Philippines, Dr. Ali Ibrahim Al-Malki, for his successful tour of duty in a farewell call.

Al-Malki started serving as Qatar’s envoy to the Philippines in 2016 and has been pushing for efforts to increase cooperation and trade exchange between Qatar and the Philippines.

Last week, he joined Vice President and Education Secretary Sara Duterte in distributing school materials to daycare learners at a gift-giving event in Mandaluyong City.

Prior to being the Qatari diplomat to Manila, Al-Malki was vice-permanent representative of the state of Qatar in the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) from 2011 to 2013.

He also served in the Embassy of the State of Qatar in Lebanon from 2013 to 2015 and the Embassy of the State of Qatar in France from 2008 to 2013.
