Britain appoints Karen Pierce as its new Ambassador to UN

Britain has appointed Karen Pierce as its new Ambassador to the UN. He replaced incumbent Matthew Rycroft under whom it suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of India in the recent election to the International Court of Justice (ICJ). Earlier, she had served as Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN in New York and Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva. This is for the first time in 70 years that Britain would have no judge in the 15-member panel of the ICJ.
