President Mukherjee addresses 2016 batch of officer trainees of Indian Foreign Service
Addressing the officer trainees (2016 batch), who called on President Pranab Mukherjee at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi on June 1, Mukherjee said that they must always remember that they were representatives of India, one of the oldest civilizations of the world which taught people how to live together, develop together and advance together, stated a press release.

He stated that it was India that brought the gift of the greatest concept of universal acceptance to the world; it gave the slogan of "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" to humanity.

He told the trainees that the Foreign Service offered them the unique opportunity and privilege to represent the country and project its civilizational and cultural heritage and interact with counterparts the world over – for achieving her (Motherland's) developmental goals.

The President said that a diplomat is required to always be well informed on the widest range of relevant subjects and needed to have thorough knowledge of the economic and social dynamics of their country and also remain aware and alert about the areas in which India could engage with other countries for the benefit of its people.

The President was of the view that it was important for the diplomats to cultivate a deep interest and understanding of the countries where they got posted in order to explore all opportunities for strengthening India's bilateral relations with its Government and people.
