New representative of the European Union on South Caucasus, Swiss diplomat, Peter Semnebi, will officially take up his office in March 2006 and after will tour the region, Alan Waddams, the special Ambassador of the EUs European Commission in Azerbaijan, told journalists on Wednesday.
I hope the visit will be paid in the soon. In difference to me, he (Semnebi- Trend) will represent entire European Union, said Waddams, noted there was no exact term of the visit.
In reply to question on possible participation of the EU, especially, the European Commission, in the talks on the Caspian status Waddams noted that EU has not received such appeals.
It is a very specific issue and I think the international organizations, in particular, the OSCE, would be able to make greater contribution in this respect than the EU, Waddams underlined.
