Antonio Guterres was quiet this year. The UN Secretary-General, son-in-law even to the case of the murdered Saudi journalists Khashoggi. Guterres, the fear, kusche in front of the donors.
The General Secretary is not the commander-in-chief, has said that Antonio Guterres once about his Job. But what is he then? General, or the Secretary of the United Nations - this Antonio Guterres, the promised, once as a candidate so much and so promising sound.
bridge Builder. Enabler. Enablers. A catalyst, an Ambassador for peace. An Honest Broker. Thus, Guterres had described his job once. It was a matter of, "to act with humanity instead of with arrogance". He would not give anyone a lesson. Guterres was speaking about. It was his job description.Guterres silent
In fiscal year 2018 but the honest broker was very quiet on the road, the ambassadors for peace is very diplomatic. And the man who said he was not going to racism and human rights abuses only in name, but clearly profess, where the was, as the Saudis, the journalist Jamal Khashoggi murdered, and the UN Secretary-General, son-in-law so loud?
The Saudi Journalist and activist, Jamal Khashoggi, was murdered in the Saudi Embassy.
Sherin Tadros, Head of Amnesty International in New York, says, the Silence of Guterres was unbearable: "It is incredibly not normal. If he really wants to find out the truth, what investigation could provide as an independent, UN?" Guterres himself could ask Turkey and Saudi Arabia, the UN turn on.
But it is precisely the fact of this Guterres. On the contrary, it is from well-informed circles. He had asked Turkey again to let them, no investigation by the UN. Guterres, the allegation of the critics is about Saudi money. "Guterres is under a lot of pressure, financially. The UN need money, the Saudis give a lot. Therefore, by Guterres, to hear nothing," said Tadros.Diplomat or a voice of the oppressed?
The people want to serve Guterres. But he is only rarely listen to the man who once said, what it lacks in the case of the UN, leadership. But where this Guterres leads the UN? Rarely it occurs in New York in front of the microphones of the journalists. Answers to pressing questions - Guterres, the leaves sigh, his usually annoyed press Secretary, in turn, is annoyed when journalists are annoyed: "you are allowed to. I may sigh. But you can't sigh before I've even begun", says Stephane Dujarric, for example.
Behind the Scenes at the UN but some of the Ambassador's sigh, the fear Guterres kusche, ahead of the USA, in front of the donors. In Front Of Trump. Never Guterres has expressed publicly critical of the US-American UN policy. For good reason his critics say. The man am already planning his re-election as the UN Secretary General in two years. Without the blessing of the USA would be it but nothing. Guterres, the man who reminded all, we are here to serve at the UN, to the people.Christoph Heusgen, Germany's voice in the security Council, UN special envoy: New man for "Mission: Impossible", 31.10.2018 A lost year - the very silence of the UN Secretary-General, Georg Schwarte, ARD New York |audio Atlas |USA |New York
