I have today announced the appointment of Mr Noel Campbell as Ambassador to the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.

Mr Campbell joined the then Department of Foreign Affairs in 1975 and subsequently served in Buenos Aires, Lima and Geneva. From 1989 to 1992 he was Counsellor at the Australian Embassy in Washington. Mr Campbell has been Charge d'Affaires in Belgrade since his arrival there in May 1994.
