UN Secretary-general Ban Ki- moon on Thursday announced the reappointment of Edmond Mulet of Guatemala as assistant secretary-general for peacekeeping operations.

Mulet succeeds Atul Khare of India, to whom Ban expressed gratitude in a statement released by his spokesperson "for his service of more than one year in the Department of Peacekeeping Operations."

Mulet had previously served as assistant secretary-general for peacekeeping operations from 2007 to 2010.

He most recently served as special representative of the secretary-general and head of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH).

Mulet was deployed in the immediate aftermath of the January 2010 earthquake, and led the United Nations contribution to the country's recovery, from the provision of humanitarian assistance to reconstruction and the recent holding of presidential elections, said the statement.

Mulet was also special representative of the secretary-general for Haiti from 2005 to 2007, and has held various positions in his country as a diplomat and member of Congress, and as a journalist and legal counselor.
