High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini has confirmed the nomination of 42 new heads of the European Union’s delegations worldwide, including the nomination of Austrian diplomat Johann Sattler for the new Head of the EU Delegation to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Sattler is supposed to replace current Head of the EUD and EU Special Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina Lars-Gunnar Wigemark, and media in the country speculate that he will assume the post on September 1.

Johann Sattler is currently serving as Austrian Ambassador to Albania, and is believed to be well-acquainted with the situation in the entire region of Western Balkans.

He also worked as the Deputy Head of the Office of Chief Secretary with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Austria, political advisor in the Austrian Embassy in Washington, member of the Office of the EU Special Envoy for Southeastern Europe with the Stability Pact in Brussels, and Head of the Western Balkans Office with the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
