Office of the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Office of the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General is a department of the United Nations that provides information to the news media regarding the activities of the U.N. as a whole.[1]

Role

The department is in charge of managing media relations on behalf of:

Officers

  • Stéphane Dujarric – Spokesperson for the Secretary-General[1]
  • Farhan Haq – Deputy Spokesperson[1]
  • Charlotte Larbuisson – Associate Spokesperson for the Secretary-General
  • Eri Kaneko – Associate Spokesperson[1]
  • Mathias Gillmann – Associate Spokesperson[1]
  • Florencia Soto Nino – Associate Spokesperson[1]

Controversy

In 2012, the official United Nations Twitter account posted an erroneous tweet, implying that the U.N. Secretary-General supports a one-state solution to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. The tweet was later found to have been written by spokesperson Nancy Groves, who attributed it to a "terrible typo".[2]

According to Reuters, the U.N. spokesperson post is considered to be a "dream job", but it requires taking into account the concerns of the 192 nations and "competing for the Secretary-General's attention".[3]
