On 26 January, the centenary of the international de jure recognition of the Republic of Latvia, employees of the Foreign Service are donating books to the NLL People’s Book Shelf.

The selected books symbolically honour the resolute work carried out by diplomats of previous generations in establishing the Latvian state.

Andris Vilks, the NLL Director, receives the gift from Andris Pelšs, State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, at the first virtual presentation ceremony for the People’s Bookshelf.
