HIGH REPRESENTATIVE CATHERINE ASHTON WELCOMES THE APPOINTMENT OF MR ANDRZEJ TYSZKIEWICZ AS HEAD OF THE EUMM IN GEORGIA

06.07.2011
On 5 July 2011, Catherine Ashton, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, welcomed the decision by the Political and Security Committee to appoint Andrzej Tyszkiewicz as Head of the EU Monitoring Mission in Georgia.

"I am very pleased that Member States have decided on the basis of my proposal to appoint Andrzej Tyszkiewicz, from Poland, as Head of Mission for the EU Monitoring Mission in Georgia (EUMM).

Mr Andrzej Tyszkiewicz has the necessary skills required to conduct a large-scale civilian monitoring mission in a complex political environment. His experience constitutes the appropriate background to run EUMM, while continuing to deliver on the implementation of the Missions mandate.

I am sure he will lead this mission to greater achievements for enhancing security and stability in Georgia as well as in the whole region, while building confidence amongst the parties to the 2008 conflict for finding a peaceful and long-lasting solution. For that reason, Mr Andrzej Tyszkiewicz will have my full support and that of the EU as a whole."

Mr Andrzej Tyszkiewicz succeeds Hansjörg Haber from Germany following his appointment as Head of the EU Civilian Planning and Conduct Capability (CPCC) of the EEAS.
