DIPLOMAT MAGAZINE “For diplomats, by diplomats” Reaching out the world from the European Union First diplomatic publication based in The Netherlands Founded by members of the diplomatic corps on June 19th, 2013. Diplomat Magazine is inspiring diplomats, civil servants and academics to contribute to a free flow of ideas through an extremely rich diplomatic life, full of exclusive events and cultural exchanges, as well as by exposing profound ideas and political debates in our printed and online editions.

One of the greenest parts of the City, where King Willem-Alexander lives with his family at Palais ten Bosh in the Haagse Bos, is an extensive 100 acres forest that welcomes our diplomats every year for a day out running, walking and enjoying nature with colleagues.  

The 2020 version received a relatively large group of diplomats looking for a relaxing Saturday in contact with nature.

Quickly, the group of runners was formed with diplomats from Venezuela, Germany, Georgia, Yemen and US for a 5k challenge, followed by 3k walkers. Some participants decided to enjoy a breakfast or coffee at the Chalet Ten Bosh.

Abdahmed Saleh Yaffai, Minister Counselor of the Yemeni embassy, has been one of the fastest runners during the past three years. Yaffai has been called back to his headquarter and will soon serve at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Yemen. 

Diplomats from the Philippines, Lebanon, Italy, India, Mexico and Burundi, just to mention a few, gathered as well at Chalet ten Bosh. In addition, a light lunch was served in the early afternoon.
