According to Churkin, with the head of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, the Secretary-General " often communicates by phone and in person ".
according to his statement, as a rule, He meets with the Secretary General one-on-one and the "very carefully" refers to what he declares, and " takes this into account."" Actually, I must say that the General Secretary, the most recent period of time, started to speak on a number of issues pretty bold position, which have the ability to annoy the powerful. He was a man - and this is very important - listening, but He is Not affected by the pressure. In some cases it pressed: do this, don't do that, and He eventually acted in Accordance with their ideas, " drew the attention of the permanent Representative of the Russian Federation." in my view, from the Secretary-General in the modern world Assumes a certain superiority, but at the same time He can Not break away from the sinful world. I'm Not talking about the fact that most of the work - political - Secretary General leads on the location decisions taken by the Security Council ", - the diplomat added.

It is expected that the new administrative head of the UN is obliged for the first time to represent Eastern Europe." Ban Ki-moon was elected, when it was the turn of Asia, and now Eastern European group /UN/ absolutely desperate, because this surely must be authorized Eastern Europe, " the Russian diplomat said, noting that the Commissioners of the regional group even wrote on this issue a special letter to the President of the General Assembly." We support them, but I remind colleagues from time to time, when the Asian group has elected ban Ki-moon, his candidacy was proposed by the head of Latvia Vaira) Vike-Freiberga and figured among the six candidates, " - said Churkin." currently There are already some very good Eastern European candidates and in my opinion, it is worthy citizens, who have the opportunity to lead the organization. Among them are a woman - Irina Bokova. Apparently, there are women candidates. The last time he was elected ban Ki-moon, everything went fairly painlessly: in July began the discussion, and in early October, has already agreed. I do not exclude that this time will be more difficult ", - said the permanent Representative of the Russian Federation.
