Lajčák takes up post as UN High Representative

Slovak diplomat Miroslav Lajčák on July 1 took up his new post as UN High Representative and Special Envoy of the European Union in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

He replaced German diplomat Christian Schwarz-Schilling. His official installation ceremony is July 2.

The Slovak diplomat says that he wants to focus on reforming the Bosnian Constitution and completing police reforms, both of which are the final conditions for the signing of a stabilization and association agreement between the country and the EU.

Lajčák is also interested in increasing the breadth of the EU envoy's mandate, and in "providing a vivid picture of the European agenda and European integration".
