Seychelles agreement with Mauritius to share the ownership of the Mascareigne bank cited as an example of solving a contention through the policy of cultural diplomacy

Seychelles agreement with Mauritius to share the ownership of the Mascareigne bank cited as an example of solving a contention through the policy of cultural diplomacy (Forimmediaterelease.net) The Seychelles agreement with Mauritius to share the ownership of the Mascareigne bank was cited by the Seychelles founding President, Sir James Mancham, as being a prime example of solving a “contention” through the policy of cultural diplomacy.

The Seychelles former President made this remark when he delivered a keynote address at the opening of UMOJA – “The Gathering of All African Nations Conference” which is being hosted in Berlin by the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy. Sir James is, in fact, Patron of the African Chapter of the Institute.

Welcoming Sir James to the Conference, Mr. Mark C. Donfried, Director and Founder of the Berlin-based Institute for Cultural Diplomacy, spoke about Sir James’ unbeatable credentials as a man focused on peace in Africa and peace in the world.

The Institute will have a special showing of the documentary “Seychelles Global Citizen – The Life of Sir James Mancham” to the interns and participants of the African Conference at one of the sessions tomorrow – Thursday, October 25, 2012 - following which Sir James has agreed to answer questions.

On the sideline of the conference Sir James had discussions with the Hon. Johannes Selle, member of the Bundestag and Chairman of the CDU Committee on Economic Cooperation and Development for Africa of the German Parliament. The CDU is Germany’s ruling party. The Hon. Selle was accompanied by his special assistant Mr. Andreas Jahn.

Following his meeting with the influential German Parliamentarian, Sir James said that he will take up with Seychelles President Michel, Germany’s interest to have a Seychelles Ambassador resident in Berlin. At the moment the representation is through Brussels.

“Germany is economically the most important nation within the European Union. Cape Verde, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Madagascar have all recently opened up embassies in Berlin. I am sure that President Michel and Minister Adam will give positive consideration to Germany’s interest in a more direct diplomatic engagement with Seychelles,” the former President stated.

Sir James is expected back in Seychelles next week.
