Meet the Ambassador

Welcome to the Royal Embassy of Denmark in Ankara.

The embassy is led by Danny Annan, who has been designated as Danish ambassador to Turkey. The bilateralt relations between Denmark and modern Turkey began with a treaty of friendship in 1925. Before that, Danish diplomatic representative had been sent to the Ottoman Empire since the middle of the 18th century.

On the embassy, we work every day to strengthen the already good connections between Denmark and Turkey. Both the bilateral political relations, but also the cultural ties and and commercial connections are handled by the embassy, in cooperation with the Consulate General in Istanbul. Aside from that, we closely follow the political situation in Turkey. The embassy in Ankara also covers Azerbaijan.

Danny is the previous ambassador to Iran, and has been posted to India, Sri Lanka, Libanon and Syria.
