Britain Appoints Ambassador to Belgrade
Britain has appointed a new ambassador to Belgrade, the Foreign Office announced Wednesday, after the Yugoslav government decided to restore diplomatic relations severed by the Kosovo conflict.
He is Charles Crawford, a former ambassador to Sarajevo, who will take up
his appointment in January.
Earlier this month, Belgrade also reestablished diplomatic relations with the United States, France and Germany.
They too had been broken at the start of the NATO bombing campaign in March 1999 against Yugoslav forces operating in the southern province of Kosovo.
