Security Council agrees on Portugal's Guterres next UN chief

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The Security Council unanimously agreed Wednesday that Portugal's former prime minister Antonio Guterres should be the next secretary-general of the United Nations.
Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin made the announcement to reporters surrounded by the 14 other council ambassadors after they held a sixth informal poll of the 10 candidates behind closed doors.
Churkin announced that the council would hold a formal vote on Thursday morning. He expressed hope that the council will recommend Guterres by acclamation to the 193-member General Assembly, which must approve a successor to Ban Ki-moon whose second five-year term ends on Dec. 31.
