UK Government Appoints New Ambassador to the EU Ahead of Brexit Negotiations

LONDON – The United Kingdom on Wednesday confirmed the appointment of its new ambassador to the European Union a day after the resignation of his predecessor in a key post in the Brexit negotiation process.

The government said in a statement that senior diplomat Tim Barrow would take over from Ivan Rogers as the UK’s permanent representative to the EU in Brussels.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson welcomed the appointment of Barrow following the announcement of the appointment by No 10 Downing Street, Prime Minister Theresa May’s office.

“Tim Barrow has been invaluable since I joined the Foreign Office in July and I want to personally thank him for his relentless energy, wise counsel and steadfast commitment,” Johnson said in a statement.

“He is just the man to get the best deal for the UK,” Johnson added.

Some lawmakers in May’s conservative government had said Rogers was “half-hearted” about the UK’s departure from the EU.

Rogers had advised his team in Brussels to stand up to “muddled thinking” by government ministers in his resignation note.

He also revealed that officials were still unaware of the negotiating priorities of the government in London.

May has said that she planned to start talks with the European Commission before the end of March, but has given no details of her government’s strategy for fear of “showing her cards.”

Barrow, 52, was educated at the universities of Warwick and Oxford and had previously served as ambassador to Moscow (2011-2015) and Ukraine (2006-2008).
