Published Monday September 19 2016

On September 16th, 2016, Ambassador Sylvie Lucas presented her Letter of Credence to President Barack Obama, thus becoming the 14th Ambassador of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg accredited to the United States of America. The credentialing ceremony at the White House was an opportunity for Ambassador Lucas to confirm her determination to contribute to the further strengthening of the bonds of friendship and cooperation that exist between the United States and Luxembourg, and to highlight her priorities for her stay in Washington, DC. President Obama recognized Luxembourg for its moral and diplomatic leadership and its reputation as an honest broker and effective mediator, most recently on the UN Security Council and during Luxembourg’s Presidency of the EU Council.
