Czech diplomacy will appoint two new Czech ambassadors to two key posts in Brussels in 2024. These will be the Head of the Permanent Representation of the Czech Republic to the EU and the Head of the Permanent Delegation of the Czech Republic to NATO.

"This year we are appointing ambassadors in two key positions, in two international institutions that are the key to the security and prosperity of Czechia and our citizens. Vladimír Bärtl will represent the Czech Republic as Ambassador to the EU, and David Konecký will become Ambassador to the Permanent Delegation of the Czech Republic to NATO," said Foreign Minister Jan Lipavský.

Vladimír Bärtl currently serves as Ambassador to Luxembourg. He has previously represented Czech diplomacy in Canada and France. He will move to the post of ambassador to the EU at the end of this year.
