The High Representative extended until October 31

(B2) Javier Solana, the High Representative for EU Foreign Policy who is also the Secretary General of the Council, will be reappointed in his position. A decision appointing him – as well as the Deputy Secretary General of the Council, Pierre de Boissieu until October 31 – was adopted by the ambassadors of the 27 according to a written procedure. This extension allows the European Council, which meets on October 29 and 30, to debate future appointments. But it is a safe bet that by the end of October, a new extension decision will be made.
