Brazilís Temer Accepts Credentials of Spanish Envoy

BRASILIA Ė Brazilian President Michel Temer received on Monday the diplomatic credentials of Spainís new ambassador to the South American giant, Fernando Maria Villalonga Campos, as well as those of 11 other diplomats from different countries, government officials said.

The ceremony was held in Planalto Palace, the seat of Brazilís government, in Brasilia, the Presidentís Office said in a statement.

Temer also accepted the credentials of Uruguayan Ambassador Gustavo Vaneiro Balbela, and those of the representatives of Oman, Thailand, Austria, Georgia, Japan, Sudan, Norway, Nigeria, France and Malaysia.

Villalonga, born in Valencia in 1960, was the third foreign envoy to present his credentials to the Brazilian leader, replacing Manuel de la Camara Hermoso, who was recently designated Spainís ambassador to Finland.

The diplomat holds a law degree and has served in Spainís diplomatic corps since 1985, holding posts in Iraq, Indonesia and Argentina.

In 2014, he worked as the director of the Royal Academy of Spain in Rome and, before being named ambassador to Brazil, he was Spainís cultural and scientific officer in the United Kingdom.

Villalonga last week visited Rio de Janeiro to meet with the heads of Spanish companies, institutions and communications media with interests and operations in Brazil.

In a recent interview with EFE, the new envoy said that Spain is redoubling its activities in Brazil within the context of the ďmagnificent political harmonyĒ between the governments of the two nations.
