Prestigious publication Diplomat magazine has named Indonesian ambassador to the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland Teuku Mohammad Hamzah Thayeb '€œDiplomat of the Year from Asia 2013.'€

An honor given '€œby diplomats, for diplomats'€, votes were cast online by the diplomatic community in the UK. A panel comprising former award recipients was also involved in the selection process, as reported
by Antara news agency.

Sir Christopher Meyer, the host of the event and former UK ambassador to the US, said that Hamzah was considered very active and popular among the diplomatic corps as well as with the general public.

Hamzah, whose father was also an ambassador to the UK in 1990, is currently the Chairman of the ASEAN London Community.

Among former recipients of the award include Ambassador Fu Ying of China, High Commissioner Michael Eng Cheng of Singapore, and Ambassador Keichi Hayashi of Japan. (asw/dic)
