But Maldenov told Guterres he would leave the United Nations when his current job ends on December 31, according to the organization’s spokesman Stephen Dujarric.
“Miladenov informed the Secretary-General in a letter that he had made this decision for personal and family reasons,” Dujarric explained, adding that the United Nations was looking for potential candidates, but acting ambassador Stephanie Williams would remain in that position for the time being.
