Tonga: King opens embassy in Abu Dhabi
King Tupou VI of Tonga visited Abu Dhabi in late September to open his country’s first embassy in the UAE, located in Etihad Towers. The limited extent of opportunities with the Pacific island nation was clear by the fact that the UAE only sent minister of state Zaki Nusseibeh as its representative to the occasion. The UAE has a non-resident ambassador to Tonga, Saleh Ahmed Salem Al-Suwaidi, who is usually based in New Zealand.
