The former head of the presidential International Policy Bureau, Krzysztof Szczerski, began the mission of Poland’s representative to the United Nations in New York. Szczerski himself announced on Twitter.
“After visiting the UN Diplomatic Protocol, I am starting my mission in New York at @PLinUN (Permanent Representation of the Republic of Poland to the United Nations in New York – PAP)” – wrote the ambassador on Friday. Next to it, he posted a photo of his new ID with an expiry date for the next four years – until the end of August 2025.
On June 14, Szczerski was nominated as the Polish ambassador and head of our permanent representation to the United Nations in New York. Due to his departure to the post, President Andrzej Duda dismissed Szczerski from his function in the Palace on July 13. He appointed Jakub Kumoch in his place.
During his dismissal, the president awarded him with the Officer’s Cross of the Order of Polonia Restituta for “outstanding merits in state and public activity and achievements in scientific work”.
