TELE US at the ambassador’s farewell
Atmospheric reception with international guests
Last week, TELE had the opportunity to attend the farewell reception of Austrian Ambassador Wolfgang A. Waldner in Washington DC. The ambassador himself, together with his wife and some senior officials, greeted every visitor and thanked them for their presence. Over a glass of Austrian champagne, guests were invited to listen to a performance by jazz trumpeter Franz Hackl and his band. Subsequently, Wolfgang A. Waldner entertained those present with anecdotes about his years as Ambassador to the United States and received the thanks of Deputy Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Philip Reek.
