Written by on October 4, 2016 in Bulgaria - No comments

U.N./NEW YORK CITY (FF) – The new Bulgarian candidate for Secretary General of the United Nations, Kristalina Georgieva, held a press conference at the U.N. in New York City, after her “informal dialogue” there. During the latter, she was questioned for two hours, by members of the U.N. General Assembly.

At the press conference, she said one of her advantages “next to other outstanding candidates” was her experience in international organizations, which “allows me to cut through the complexity of problems and (…)  to be more agile in a fast changing world”. Georgieva made this statement both in Bulgarian and English.

She also said she offered the “capacity to bring people together”, which she had proven in her work. Different positions could be aligned, she stated, in order to have solutions everyone could subscribe to.

Kristalina Georgieva reminded observers of Hillary Clinton, when she said “I get things done.”
