But the spokesperson for Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that when UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors speak in their personal capacity, they retain the right to speak about issues that interest or concern them. Furthermore, he says that their personal views or actions do not necessarily reflect those of UNICEF.
