New Zealand Ambassador to France presents credentials


New Zealand's new Ambassador to France, Rosemary Banks, presented her credentials to French President Nicolas Sarkozy at a ceremony in Paris held in early December for 22 new ambassadors. Accompanying the President was new French Foreign Affairs Minister Mme Alliot-Marie.

She had an opportunity to have a few words with the President, including about the Rugby World Cup being held in New Zealand in 2011.
