Styled in his native Bavaria’s national dress German Permanent Representative to the OPCW Ambassador Dr. Cristoph Israng received guests for a reception “to celebrate end of winter”.
In his address he pointed out the success of the OPCW in recent years and that he was very proud that his wife was wearing a Bavarian dirndl for the first time. The reception was also accompanied with the music of Hermann Huber world champion on the Styrian harmonica a beautifully crafted instrument that to the layman has the appearance of an accordion.
Special guest was the OPCW Director-General H.E. Mr Ahmet Üzümcü who like the rest of the present enjoyed the “gemütlichkeit und freundschaft” on a not so spring like Dutch afternoon.
