NEW YORK — United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres has appointed Under-Secretary-General for General Assembly and Conference Management Movses Abelian of Armenia (as well as a national of Georgia), as the new Coordinator for Multilingualism, in implementation of General Assembly resolution 69/250.

In this role, Mr. Abelian is responsible for coordinating the overall implementation of multilingualism Secretariat-wide.
