Toivo Klaar appointed as new special representative for South Caucasus and crisis in Georgia

YEREVAN, November 13. /ARKA/. The European Union (EU) has appointed today Estonian diplomat, Toivo Klaar, as a new Special Representative for the South Caucasus and the Crisis in Georgia, the European Union's Council said. Toivo Klaar has replaced Herbert Salber, who held the position since 2014 July to June 2017.

The European Council said Klaar’s task will be to contribute to a peaceful settlement of conflicts in the region, namely the crisis in Georgia and the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, as well as to encourage regional cooperation. 

Klaar was appointed as the Head of Mission for the EU Monitoring Mission in Georgia (EUMM Georgia) in 2013. Previously, from March 2012, he was the Head of Division for Human Resources Policy and Coordination in the European External Action Service (EEAS).

EU Special Representatives promote the EU's policies and interests in certain regions and countries as well as issues of particular concern or interest for the EU. They play an active role in efforts to consolidate peace, stability and the rule of law. The first EU Special Representatives were appointed in 1996. Currently, eight EU Special Representatives support the work of the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini.-0-
