PR Exonerates Special Envoy for UN Security Council Candidacy

Filipe Nyusi, on Monday, November 28, dismissed Leonardo Simão as ambassador special envoy for the promotion of the country’s application for non-permanent membership of the UN Security Council, according to a statement.

“The resignation of Leonardo Simão follows the conclusion of the mission that culminated with the election of Mozambique as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council,” the statement said.

Leonardo Simão was appointed to the position, which he left yesterday, in September 2021, in order to promote the candidacy of Mozambique as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, a position that the country achieved last June, with 192 votes.

Leonardo Simão was minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation and of Health in the governments of President Joaquim Chissano, who headed the Mozambican State between 1986 and 2005.
