Question: When will Ambassador Stephen Bosworth end his duties as Special Representative for North Korea Policy?

Answer: After two-and-a-half years of distinguished service as the Special Representative for North Korea Policy, Ambassador Stephen Bosworth's tenure as Special Representative concludes with the return of the U.S. delegation from Geneva.

Ambassador Glyn Davies has already been announced as his successor and has assumed the duties of Special Representative effective immediately. He will wrap up his duties as Permanent Representative of the United States to the IAEA and the UN Office in Vienna and return to Washington before the end of November.
