British Prime Minister Theresa May has appointed Sir Tim Barrow, a senior career diplomat, as envoy to the European Union, Reuters reported.
The move comes after Sir Ivan Rogers quit as Britain's European Union ambassador with a scathing resignation letter that urged his staff in Brussels to "continue to challenge ill-founded arguments and muddled thinking".
Tim Barrow is the political director of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. He was a former ambassador to Moscow.
He will take up the new assignment next week, Prime Minister's Downing Street office confirmed, reported Reuters.
