SOCIETY: First Virtual Welcome Dinner

Andrei DAPKIUNA, Ambassador of Belarus, H.E. Mohamed EL-MOLLA, Ambassador of Egypt with his spouse Ms. Dina SELIM, H.E. Ketevan TSIKHELASHVILI, Ambassador of Georgia and her twins, H.E. Kairat UMAROV, Ambassador of Kazahkhstan with his spouse Ms. Aigerim UMAROVA and child, H.E. Frédéric LABARRERE, Ambassador of Monaco and Ms. Peggy BAYZELON and H.E. Abat FAYZULLAEV, Ambassador Uzbekistan and spouse Ms. Khamida FAYZULLAEVA, personally. Ambassador Dr. Ernst-Peter BREZOVSZKY, Head of UNESCO Unit, MFA, lead through the evening and surprised the guests with a beautiful musical intermezzo on his piano. The attendants enjoyed a great evening with pleasant virtual encounters, accompanied by a delicious 3-course menu, sponsored and delivered by the House of Switzerland in Multilateral Vienna.
