Upon the British Ambassador’s kind invitation, Mr. Azamat Akbarov and other English Department staff attended the event at the British Embassy in Sarajevo to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.
H. E. Nigel Casey, British ambassador in BiH invited our academicians on the celebration of Queen’s Elizabeth II Jubilee event, which was held at the ambassador's residence. The British Embassy in BiH joined other British Embassies around the world to celebrate this event on June 12th, 2012.
The festivity marked 60 years since Queen Elizabeth II ascended to the throne, a monumental anniversary for a monarch and it is the second time that has happened in British history. Queen Victoria previously ruled for 63 years.
In his address at the event, the British Ambassador Casey spoke about the relations between the UK and BiH, and about the cooperation that was started between the two countries over the past year, in the domain of science and culture.
Invited guests were greeted by a Scottish bagpiper and enjoyed British themed food and live entertainment.
