Qatari official appointed UN chief’s Special Adviser

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has appointed HE Dr Ahmed bin Mohammed al Muraikhi as his Special Adviser. The main responsibilities of the Special Adviser are to give, upon request, advise to the Secretary-General on request for dialogue and relations with regional organisations and member states, and to call for cooperation with the UN between partners, especially South-South global cooperation and the private sector, as well as facilitating high-level meetings for the Secretary-General and other senior UN leaders.
The Office of the Special Adviser to the US Secretary-General in Doha said this in a statement on Monday. Also, the adviser undertakes work on special projects mandated by the Secretary-General, providing advice in cooperation and partnerships areas and geopolitical dynamics, methods and mechanisms for correcting misconceptions about the UN system and its work, as well as undertaking other related activities. Muraikhi held the position of Humanitarian Envoy for the UN between December 2016 and December 2019. He has a proven record in the diplomatic and humanitarian fields, as he held many positions in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other institutions in the country, before moving to work with the UN.
