Guatemala Hails Leadership, Ideals of New UN Chief

GUATEMALA CITY – The government of Guatemala congratulated on Thursday former Portuguese prime minister Antonio Guterres on his appointment as the new Secretary-General of the United Nations, applauding his unquestionable ideals, integrity and leadership.

Guatemala called the election process historic in its stress on transparency, and praised the vast experience of Guterres in the UN that will help provide “renewed impetus” to the global agenda in the fields of peace, security, sustainable development and human rights.

“Guterres embodies the highest standards of competence, integrity and leadership, giving priority to cooperation for the common good and shared responsibility for all people on the planet,” said a statement by the Guatemalan foreign ministry.

The 193 Member States of the UN adopted, by acclamation, the recommendation made by the Security Council, which on Oct. 6 recommended Guterres should succeed the South Korean Ban Ki-moon.

The Portuguese politician, who headed the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees for 10 years, will assume his new position on Jan. 1 for the period 2017-2021.
