Italian Army Colonel Pio Sabeta is the new spokesman for the KFOR mission in Kosovo. He was named for this position early in July and will replace Colonel Vicenza Grasso, who has been in charge of media cooperation for the past twenty months. Colonel Sabeta’s biography provided to the Atlantic Council of Serbia by the Office of Public Affairs at the KFOR Command reveals that he has a respectable military experience and has been at important positions so far: from 1996-1998. He served in SFOR troops as part of NATO ‘s mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where he served as Chief Information Officer. Subsequently, since 1999, he has been a military observer in the UNMIK United Nations mission in Iraq and Kuwait and two years later in the United Nations mission in Eritrea and Ethiopia. Since 2005, he has been transferred to Kosovo, where he served as Chief Information Officer and spokesman for KFOR. He remained in that position until 2010, when he took up a new position and left for Afghanistan, where he was assigned to the International Security Forces Mission (ISAF) in Herat. There he served in Sector J9 at the Regional Command for the West (RCW). Colonel Sabeta was born in 1964 and in addition to the Military Academy and the Specialist Officer Course, graduated from Strategic Sciences at the University of Turin.
