The New Zealand Ambassador presents credentials to the President of the Russian Federation

The newly appointed Ambassador of New Zealand to the Russian Federation H.E. Mr Hamish Cooper presented his credentials to the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin on 24 January 2013.

In keeping with tradition, the presentation ceremony was held at the St. Alexander Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace. Speaking at the ceremony about New Zealand-Russia relations President Putin said:

“We view New Zealand as an important partner of the Russian Federation in the Asia-Pacific region; our relations are developing at an ever-increasing rate. Among the priorities are the conclusion of negotiations on a free trade agreement between the Customs Union member states and New Zealand and the preparation for the visit by Prime Minister Key”.

As we look ahead to the 70th anniversary of New Zealand-Russia diplomatic relations (2014) our Embassy will be working hard on the further strengthening of all aspects of New Zealand-Russia relations.
