The Permanent Representative to the U.N.
How do I address the French Permanent Representative to the United Nations? I believe, the Permanent Representative would be addressed as Ambassador in the salutation, but I had also found several letters on the internet addressing the Permanent Representative as Your Excellency.
A permanent representative to an international organization such as the United Nations holds the rank of ambassador. His rank is ‘ambassador’ – his role is ‘permanent representative’. This person is addressed in the style of a foreign ambassador and identified as the permanent representative.
