The position comes a new UN Secretary-General António Guterres

65
Today, Antonio Manuel de Oliveira Gutterish officially assumes the post of Secretary-General of the United Nations, replacing Ban Ki-moon in this post. Recall that the Korean Ban Ki-moon has been in office since January 1 2007.


The position comes a new UN Secretary-General António Guterres


Previously, Gutterish held such posts as the Secretary General of the Socialist Party and the Prime Minister of Portugal (up to 2002), Chairman of the Socialist International (up to 2005), UN High Commissioner for Refugees. It is worth adding that it was under Gutterish that the number of refugees in the world reached an absolute record since the collapse of the USSR.

UN Secretary-General António Guterresch was sworn in on 12 on December 2016 of the year, and the Organization was left to observe the last formality - to introduce Gutertish to the post, which will happen today - on January 1 of 2017. While taking the oath, Gutterish said that the UN "must be made more operational by an international organization," clearly making it clear that the Organization today has become a cumbersome mechanism through which it is possible to solve problems much less often than to escalate them.

Guterresch:
We need to think first about people, not about bureaucratic processes.


Identified and members of the team Gutertisha. Thus, the post of UN Deputy Secretary General is occupied by the representative of Nigeria, Amina Mohammed, who is a rare guest in Nigeria, as she is a professor at Columbia University. Brazilian Maria Luís Ribeiro Viotti, former Brazil’s envoy to the UN, becomes the head of staff.

It remains to wish success to Antonio Guterres in such a significant international post.

    Happy New Year 2017 to everyone, as one wise man said, "Let good people be good, bad people feel bad." I wish there were as few bad people as possible this year.

    And I wish the new Secretary General not to be a puppet in the hands of the United States, like his predecessor. This organization urgently needs to revive authority, otherwise the fate of the League of Nations awaits him.

        Biography
        António Guterres was born in Lisbon in 1949.

        He graduated from the Higher Technical Institute, where he taught from 1973 to 1975. It was associated with some youth Catholic movements [4].
        In 1974 he became involved in politics, joining the Socialist Party of Portugal. In 1992-2002 he was the party's general secretary. From 1995 to 2002, he headed the government of Portugal [5].
        For ten years, from 2005 to 2015, he worked as the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

      I still remember Kurt Waldheim, perhaps it seems to me now, But then the UN was more authoritative than under Pak.
      I am a little annoyed by the "socialist" past of Gutterisch. I remember this pattern: if the left in the past, now the first is closer to mattresses and anti-Russian. Let's remember Jacques Roget, the Olympic Committee turned into .... Shop, and McLaren is a "valiant" successor.
      And vice versa: Waldheim 'is a former Austrian fascist, Juan Antonio Samaranch is a phalangist. Thomas Bach, in my opinion, was of moderate views or generally apole

      The UN consists mostly of "chosen by God" and the office is located on the territory of a country that is, to put it mildly, unfriendly to us, so there is no point in hoping for an improvement in relations with us, as well as an improvement in the situation in the world

        God's chosen ones were in the UN before, and the office has not moved from the territory of the United States. But relations have changed a lot.
        The world was balancing on the verge of systems and thereby balancing itself, and when the USSR collapsed, the Americans felt like the center of the universe and crushed the floor of the world.
        Now the center of forces has changed and the system is beginning to balance. But the counter-forces have now changed, now countries from Asia are entering the scene.
        And balance never came in peace.

      You are right "Serg 122", but then increase in the number of refugees in my opinion, does not depend in any way on the person holding the post of "UN Commissioner for Refugees", but directly from devastation due to military coups, who organized Western countries in the Middle East, Asia, Africa and natural disasters, which were from nature itself and man-made (due to human activities) climate change and conditions on the globe.

    Biography
    António Guterres was born in Lisbon in 1949.
    In 1965 he graduated from the prestigious Camoyns School, receiving the Prémio Nacional dos Liceus Award.
    He graduated from the Higher Technical Institute, where he taught from 1973 to 1975. It was associated with some youth Catholic movements [4].
    In 1974 he became involved in politics, joining the Socialist Party of Portugal. In 1992-2002 he was the party's general secretary. From 1995 to 2002, he headed the government of Portugal [5].
    For ten years, from 2005 to 2015, he worked as the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.
    In the summer of 2016, he was nominated as a candidate for the election of the UN Secretary General. On October 5, 2016, Guterres won the vote of the UN Security Council for the post of Secretary General of the organization [6]. On October 13, 2016, the UN General Assembly elected Guterres as Secretary General. Inaugurated on January 1, 2017 [7].
    In 1972, he married a child psychiatrist, Louise Amelia Guimaraes-i-Melu (1946-1998; died of cancer). Two children remained from this marriage: Pedro Guimaraes-i-Melu Guterres (born 1977) and Mariana Guimaraes-i-Melu de Oliveira Guterres (born 1985).
    In 2001, he married Katarina Markis de Almeida Vas Pinto (born 1960), who was deputy minister of culture (1995-1997) and secretary of state for culture (1997-2000) [8]. He brings up his adopted son Francisco, Your Pinta da Costa Ramos (born 1998).
    In addition to his native Portuguese, he also speaks Spanish, French and English.
    This is not Pan of the United States extortion, which is already predicted to the Korean presidents.

    Welcome all!
    Thanks to "cap" for a detailed biography of the new UN General Secretary. It's quite interesting.
    But it will probably be better to wait 6-12 months or more and then judge / evaluate the Portuguese at this once important post based on real deeds and actions.
    Now, if there are no changes in the leadership and activities of the UN, and the UN itself continues to follow only the American course and defend the interests of the West only, then in 2-4-6 years another (similar to the former League of Nations / UN) international an organization with a center somewhere in China and defending the interests of the countries of Southeast Asia, Russia and the BRICS countries.
    Time will put everything in its place.

    If we take the data for 2013, then Russia paid 68 538 960 US dollars. For comparison, the United States - more than 618 million, China - almost 145 million, France - 157 million, Germany - almost 201 million, Ukraine - about 2,8 million.
    Is there not much for doing nothing? Or is it easier to clatter weapons?

      Those. You hint that the UN stupidly fulfills contributions? Whoever brought in more is right?
      We basically do the same ...

    Something his career is not very happy ... It hurts "left" and "supreme"

    So the loving frog is also a socialist, and he has done nasty things above the roof. As Alexander Gigorievich said, "Near the trough, whose name is power, everyone grunts the same: both red and white." drinks .

    one can only hope that the present will not be as amoeba as the former!


    for moderators, an amoeba in biology is a form of simple organisms - in political science - in the accepted figurative meaning of the word - an amoeba is a politician who does not have his own opinion

      ))) otherwise they, these very moderators, and the owners of the site, God forbid, think that you are fomenting!
      I was given a WARNING for writing a joke about "I did not see something in Israel with a plow, but in Russia with a shovel"!
      Hmm! How petty and touchy are the "God's chosen" moderators and their owners

        for sure!

        if you look at the percentage of comments on the total number of views - rarely more than 15% consider it necessary to express their opinion ....
        it’s not enough that articles are becoming more and more about nothing (with rare exceptions), and don’t write as you want - otherwise, God forbid, you’ll kindle something
        not a military-political resource - but a magazine for newborns with recipes for baby food - it’s nowhere and then it’s not ...
        and then no matter how something happens!

    Russia supported the new Secretary General than to be dissatisfied here, or do you think those who supported him from Russia are fools or something?

      They may not be fools. But for ourselves, not for our people

    All with the coming.
    Now on the news.
    Given the prostitution of the UN, one should not expect much good from this replacement.
    Good for us, of course. As usual, dude will be nothing more than a glove toy
    in the hands of those who pay him money. And given the considerable length of service at the UN, everything is tightly linked there.

    Sorry, I do not know your name, now in Profiles there is no longer a name and a forum member city.
    And the glorious Kim Philby was both a patriot of the USSR and a supporter of the ideas of communism, which for 25 years have been declared as dead and unviable ... all possible sins of the regional and republican leadership of the party, then there would be no discord with China and clashes on Damansky Island, discord with Yugoslavia, Romania, and in France and Italy by the end of the 20s and at the beginning of the 50s of the last century, the leadership of the country could come COMMUNISTS ...
    But alas, "capricious madmauzel HISTORY" does not know the subjunctive "IF".
