MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Diplomats from around the world are spending several days in New Hampshire attending rallies, campaign briefings and political party dinners as they get a close look at the first-in-the-nation presidential primary.

They’re part of the Diplomatic Observer program, which invites diplomats posted to the U.S. to visit New Hampshire to meet candidates and convey to their governments what they have learned. This year, participants include diplomats from Sweden, New Zealand, Netherlands, Australia, Ireland, Japan and Hungary.

The program is managed by George Bruno, former U.S. ambassador to Belize, and Philip James Walker, a former foreign service officer from Dunbarton.

The primary is Feb. 9.
