Turkish envoy presents diplomatic credentials to Obama

The newly-appointed Turkish Ambassador to the United States submitted his credentials to the U.S. president on Wednesday.

U.S. President Barack Obama received newly-appointed ambassadors to the United States, including Turkish Ambassador Namik Tan, at the White House.

After presenting his letter of credence to Obama, Tan has officially assumed the Turkish diplomatic mission in Washington D.C.

Tan replaced Nabi Sensoy who was appointed at the Foreign Ministry.

Graduated from Ankara University's Faculty of Law, Tan joined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 1982.

He previously served as the first secretary and counselor at Turkey's Embassy in Washington D.C., the head of United States Department of the Ministry, the secretary of the Foreign Minister, the spokesman for the Ministry, the Turkish Embassy in Israel, and deputy undersecretary of the Ministry.
