These people include the President, permanent and non-permanent members, regional and other groups, United Nations Member States known as the ‘Groups of Friends’, and political coordinators and experts. The chapter also describes the UN rules concerning representation and credentials, with particular reference to the representation of China and of the Russian Federation; permanent missions and representation; and the Secretary-General and the Secretariat.
