The video of Mon­tene­gro’s For­eign Min­is­ter Igor Luk­sic at­tracted more than 300 com­ments and 500 re­posts alone.

The in­ter­preters for the brief­ing with Luk­sic were the sub­ject of com­plaints as well as praise among Chi­nese ne­ti­zens.

One, whose user­name is @Xiex­i­aowany­ing, said that “the in­ter­preter is funny”, while @fangx­i­aobai­hua said, “It is so com­mon to see er­rors when no writ­ten ma­te­ri­als are pro­vided.”

Chen Jian, for­mer UN un­der­sec­re­tary-gen­eral and a vet­eran Chi­nese di­plo­mat, said the UN’s me­dia cam­paign, es­pe­cially the use of so­cial net­works, “ef­fec­tively adapts the UN Sys­tem to the chang­ing me­dia land­scape, in which there are in­creas­ing, mul­ti­ple chan­nels and out­lets for spread­ing in­for­ma­tion”.

Chen said the in­for­mal brief­ings “sym­bol­ize progress in the pro­ce­dures of democ­racy”, com­pared with what he called CANADAa lack of trans­parency in the past.

On Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, the weibo ac­count of the UN Sys­tem’s China branch con­firmed that Vuk Jeremic had be­come the ninth can­di­date for the post and said he will present his brief­ing on Thurs­day at 9 am New York time (9 pmBei­jing time). Jeremic was pres­i­dent of the 67th ses­sion of the UN Gen­eral Assem­bly and is for­mer Ser­bian min­is­ter of for­eign af­fairs.

Teng Jian­qun, a re­searcher at the China In­sti­tute of In­ter­na­tional Stud­ies, said the in­ter­view process is be­ing pushed partly by the ris­ing voices from coun­tries in East­ern Europe and Africa that Teng said had called for open­ness and trans­parency in the se­lec­tion process.

The com­pe­ti­tion ul­ti­mately will be shaped by the votes of the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil, and the two key fac­tors will be geopol­i­tics and gen­der, Teng said.

It will be dif­fi­cult “to es­ti­mate who will stand out to be the new UN chief un­til July”, when the Gen­eral Assem­bly will dis­cuss the fi­nal list of can­di­dates, he added.
