God save the Queen

Immutable protocol. The new coach of the Togolese ambassador to the United Kingdom arrived on Tuesday at Buckingham Palace to present his credentials to Queen Elizabeth II. 

Calixte Batossie Madjoulba, who had the opportunity to put away his suit and tie for a tail-coat, presented his "credentials" to the queen before a discussion in English and French in which she was pleased by the progress made by Togo in recent years.

Elizabeth hoped that the appointment of an Ambassador of Togo in London allows for the re-invigoration of the political, economic and cultural relations between both nations. 

On behalf of the President, Faure Gnassingbé, the diplomat conveyed thanks from the Togolese people for the continued support of Britain in the development of the country.

In the afternoon, Mr. Madjoulba was welcomed by Foreign Office officials in charge of African issues before giving a cocktail party at his hotel for British officials, the business community and representatives of the Diaspora.
