Mark Brzezinski sworn in as new US ambassador to Poland

Brzezinski, who was last month approved by the US Senate to serve as the country’s next envoy to Warsaw, took his oath of office from Vice President Kamala Harris during a ceremony at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building in Washington on Wednesday….

He is expected to arrive in Warsaw later this week.

Appearing before the US Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee in early December, Brzezinski said he would “commit to continue and strengthen” the United States’ security cooperation “with our stalwart ally Poland, where the enduring rotational presence of some 4,500 US troops defends NATO’s eastern flank.”

Brzezinski also pledged that he would “work with Poland to support the government and people of a peaceful and whole Ukraine, as well as the aspirations of the Belarusian people for a democratic Belarus.”

He added he would in particular “continue to underscore to Polish authorities the importance of an impartial judiciary, independent media, and respect for the human rights of all, including LGBTQI+ persons and members of other minorities.”

Brzezinski previously served in the administration of Barack Obama….

From 1999 to 2001, he served on President Bill Clinton’s National Security Council, first as a director for Russia and Eurasia, and then as a director for the Balkans….
