Ambassador Mark Kent hosted some of the honourees from the “Diplomats” category for a cocktail party at the British Ambassador’s Residence in Recoleta: namely Renato Carlos Sersale di Cerisano, the Argentine ambassador in London; Eduardo Mallea, the president of the Professional Association of the Foreign Service (APSEN); Rogelio Pfirter, Argentina’s ambassador to the Holy See; Ricardo Lagorio, Ambassador to the Russian Federation; and Pedro Villagra Delgado, Argentina’s Sherpa for the G20 presidency.

In a brief speech, the ambassador also praised several prize-winners with links to the Embassy and other British institutions, including Conicet – which this week welcomed a group of British scientists for a joint workshop on antimicrobial resistance – and the world-renowned Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team, which played a key role in the identification process of deceased Argentine soldiers, who had been buried in unmarked graves in Darwin Cemetery on the Malvinas (Falkland) Islands.
