As the Head of State, the monarch receives the credentials of foreign ambassadors. It is a common ceremony in several European monarchies (Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, the UK, etc.) and also in Japan.

According to the Moroccan press, King Philippe called the Moroccan king Mohammed VI to ask for more cooporation and help between the intelligence services of the two countries during the search for terrorist Salah Abdeslam.

The telephone call was immidiately followed by a call from minister Jan Jambon with his Moroccan collegue Mohamed Hassad.

It is good to see that King Philippe's personal relationship with King Mohammed VI can be used to help the Belgian security services in their quest for Abdeslam.

His Dutch is so much better these days

I agree, it is good to have a variety of photos and to see the interaction between the King and the various ambassadors like this. I also like the formality and ceremony of this event, not dissimilar to the way the Dutch monarch performs this duty.
