Britain appoints senior diplomat as next NATO envoy – POLITICO

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday appointed senior diplomat David Quarrey as the country’s next permanent representative to NATO.

Quarrey, a career diplomat who previously served as director for the Middle East and North Africa at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCDO) and ambassador to Israel, will lead the United Kingdom’s joint delegation to the military alliance later this month.

The NATO envoys meet several times a week and represent their member countries in the North Atlantic Council, the highest decision-making body of the alliance. Quarrey takes over from Sarah MacIntosh, who has held the post since February 2017.

“I am honored to take on the position of Permanent Representative of the United Kingdom to NATO,” Quarrey said in a statement. “I look forward to leading the excellent joint FCDO and [ministry of defense] Team as we work with our allies to protect our country and our citizens.”

British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss added in a statement: “David is a seasoned diplomat and will lead Britain’s efforts in cooperation with our NATO allies – I congratulate him on his appointment.”
