Angela Merkel turned down an offer to work at the UN

Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel has rejected a proposal by UN Secretary-General António Guterres to lead one of the organization’s systems.

Merkel's office reported the DPA that "as early as last week, the former chancellor thanked the secretary-general for his confidence in a telephone conversation and said she could not accept the offer".

According to reports, it was about the leadership of the advisory board of a global organization that serves the public interest of mankind. The structure deals with trade and flight safety.

P.S: Angela Merkel led the German government from 2005-2021.
