The UN General Assembly has adopted a resolution appointing Secretary-General Antonio Guterres for a second term as head of the United Nations.

The body confirmed the 72-year-old Portuguese diplomat on Friday in New York for another five years in office.

Earlier in the month, the UN Security Council had supported Guterres‘ bid for a second term as secretary-general, a crucial hurdle in the process.
