New US Ambassador to Bosnia Eric Nelson has arrived in Sarajevo on Sunday, five days after taking the oath oat of office at the State Department.
Nelson will replace Ambassador Maureen Cormack who served in Sarajevo for the past four years.
Nelson has been a US diplomat since 1980 and before he was named Ambassador to Bosnia, he was the Deputy Executive Secretary and Director of the Executive Office of the Executive Secretariat within the US State Department.
He said during his Foreign Affairs Committee hearing in October 2018 that the US will firmly continue to support the territorial integrity of Bosnia and Herzegovina and help the country progress.
Nelson also served in numerous diplomatic missions to foreign countries.
