Welcome to Sweden, Ambassador Mark Brzezinski

Today, I received an e-mail, that President Obama has appointed a new US Ambassador to Sweden, Mr Mark Brzezinski. He succeeds Ambassador Matthew Barzun, who has been recalled to the States to manage President Obamas' re-election campaign.

I warmly welcome Mr Brzezinski to Sweden and look forward to our future cooperation. Here's some background information about Mr Brzezinski:

From 1996 to 1999, he was an attorney at Hogan & Hartson. From 1991 to 1993, he worked in Poland as a Fulbright Scholar. Mr. Brzezinski is a member of the J.
