The UN Security Council on Tuesday recommended Secretary General Antonio Guterres for a second five-year term as chief of the world organisation beginning January 1, 2022.

The 15-nation Council held a closed meeting where it unanimously adopted a resolution recommending Guterres' name to the 193-member General Assembly for a second term as Secretary General.

Last month, India had conveyed its support to Guterres for his candidature as chief of the world body for a second term beginning January 2022.

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar had met Guterres at the United Nations headquarters and expressed New Delhi's support to him for his second term as the world's top diplomat.

India values UNSG's leadership of the UN, especially in these challenging times. Conveyed our support for his candidature for a second term, said Jaishankar in a tweet after the meeting.
