The diplomat who will most likely fill his place in Lebanon is Joanna Wronecka, Poland’s 21st ambassador to the United Nations.
Wronecka has a history of service in the Middle East and North Africa region. Throughout the years, she has served as the Polish Ambassador to Egypt, Morocco, and the 1st European Union Ambassador to Jordan.
She graduated from the Faculty of Arabic Studies at the University of Warsaw and, in 1985, defended her Ph.D. thesis on Arab-Muslim philosophy.
An official announcement is yet to be made regarding her formal appointment as the new UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon.
