President Dilma Rousseff received Wednesday (Nov. 4) the credentials of 22 ambassadors set to work in Brazil, among them Indonesia's Toto Riyanto. In February, Rousseff did not accept the diplomat's documents after Indonesia executed Brazilian citizen Marco Archer, sentenced to death for drug trafficking in that country.

The president appealed for clemency to the Indonesian government, but her requests were not granted. At the time, Rousseff said she had postponed the acceptance of credentials until it became clear in what terms the two countries were, after which the Indonesian government called Riyanto back to Jakarta. Rodrigo Gularte, another Brazilian, also sentenced to death for drug dealing, was executed in April.

On Wednesday, while receiving Riyanto's credentials, Rousseff talked briefly with the diplomat, as she did with the all the others, and both posed for pictures.

Apart from Indonesia, the countries represented in the ceremony are Luxemburg, Latvia, Turkmenistan, Algeria, New Zealand, the Philippines, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Malawi, North Korea, South Korea, the Emirates, Canada, Sri Lanka, France, Mali, Egypt, Sudan, Gabon, and the European Union.
