He said he will do his best to ensure trust between nations large and small, to build bridges, and to engage in confidence building.

Guterres is a former prime minister of Portugal. From 2015 to 2015, he acted as the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. He succeeded Ban Ki-Moon as Secretary-General two years later.
