Russia's Nebenzia Says Hails Work at United Nations As Interesting, Unpredictable

NEW YORK (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 10th February, 2019) Working at the United Nations is an exciting and unpredictable mission, Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vassily Nebenzia said on the occasion of Diplomats' Day, celebrated on Sunday, adding that he had no regrets about assuming the post.

"The work at the United Nations is a microcosm, it is a miniature version of the globe, it is interesting and not boring," Nebenzia told reporters.

The envoy noted that he did not regret his decision to assume the important post after the death of late Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin, who passed away in 2017.

"I did not exactly doubt; I took a pause, which the minister [Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov] kindly provided me with, to reflect. I thought, consulted, came around and said that under different circumstances, I might have thought about that three times, but at that moment I had no right to refuse," the diplomat continued.

Nebenzia also noted that Churkin's excellent reputation at the United Nations had helped him when he was assuming the post.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree appointing Nebenzia as Russia's permanent representative to the United Nations and the UN Security Council on July 27, 2017.
