EU — New Head of the EUMM in Georgia

High Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Cather­ine Ash­ton wel­comes the appoint­ment of Mr Andrzej Tyszkiewicz as Head of the EUMM in Geor­gia
Cather­ine Ash­ton, High Rep­re­sen­ta­tive for For­eign Affairs and Secu­ri­ty Pol­i­cy, today 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 Mission’s 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.
