Good Riddance

166

Germany completes a two-year term on the 15-member council at the end of this month and Ambassador Christoph Heusgen plans to retire after over 40 years as a diplomat. Germany’s U.N. envoy, during his last scheduled U.N. Security Council meeting, requested to China to free two incarcerated Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor for Christmas, as it is the right moment for such a motion, inciting China’s deputy U.N. envoy Geng Shuang to react: “Out of the bottom of my heart: Good riddance.” China’s deputy U.N. envoy, Geng Shuang, criticized Heusgen for abusing the Security Council to dispatch malicious assaults on other members trying to poison the working atmosphere. He also mentioned being hopeful that the council in Germany’s absence in the year 2021 will be in a preferable position to satisfy and fulfil the responsibilities, for keeping up global peace and security.
Heusgen additionally utilized the Security Council meeting to prompt Russia’s deputy U.N. envoy, Dmitry Polyanskiy, to read certain articles about Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny, who said he had outwitted a Russian secret agent into unveiling subtleties of a bungled plot to execute him. Russia’s FSB security service abandoned the recording as a phoney. On that, Polyanskiy replied that it appears to be that Heusgen has built up a certain reliance on the council and that there is never a meeting without a denunciation of Russia regardless of whether that is not reasonable for the topic. He hoped that after Jan. 1 Christoph’s symptoms will improve.
