AFTER serving for four years, the United Kingdom’s Ambassador to the Philippine­s Daniel Pruce paid a farewell call on Secretary of Foreign Affairs Teodoro L. Locsin Jr. on July 29 at the Department of Foreign Affairs Headquarte­rs.

Locsin thanked Pruce for his dedicated service in strengthen­ing the two-way relations between the Philippine­s and the UK. Their discussion­s also followed through on matters discussed during the recent phone call between the former and

To support the Philippine­s’s vaccine roll-out program, Pruce informed the secretary that the UK’S donation of 415,000 doses of Astrazenec­a vaccines was scheduled to arrive in the country on the afternoon of August 2.
