EU Special Representative for South Caucasus completes his mandate
Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 26 / Trend E. Ostapenko /
EU Special Representative for the South Caucasus Peter Semneby has completed his mandate, he said this at the final press-conference in Baku on Saturday.
Semneby paid his last visit to Azerbaijan as the special representative. Earlier, he paid a farewell visit to Tbilisi. Semneby's mandate as special representative officially expires on February 28.
The issue of abolishing the post of EU Special Representative in several regions, including the South Caucasus and Moldova - the outbreak of "frozen conflicts" is being discussed. EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton, made the proposal in May last year. According to her proposal, the post of the Special Representative must be combined with the post of the representative of the European External Action Service (EEAS).
It is still unknown who will deal with the issues of the South Caucasus region in the EU.
