Tomáš Szunyog from the Czech Republic has been appointed EU Special Representative (EUSR) for Kosovo. The mandate of Szunyog starts on 1 September 2020 and will end on 31 August next year, the Council of the European Union said in a statement published today.


The task of the EUSR is to promote a stable, viable, peaceful, democratic and multi-ethnic Kosovo that is committed to the rule of law and to the protection of minorities and of cultural and religious heritage, including through strengthening stability in the region and contributing to regional cooperation and good neighbourly relations in the Western Balkans, the statement reads.
