Former Slovak foreign affairs minister Miroslav Lajčák is set to return to the western Balkans soon.

Lajčák is to take up the post of the European Union's special representative for the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue and the Western Balkans for one year, starting April 2. On that day, EU ambassadors are expected to give the green light to his appointment, according to a leaked document that the Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported on.
