UNICEF backs Priyanka Chopra Jonas

Recently, Pakistan wrote to UNICEF, asking them to denotify Priyanka Chopra Jonas as their Goodwill Ambassador, owing to her comments at a beauty conference in LA, where she got in a war of words with a Pakistani woman.

When UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors “speak in their personal capacity, they retain the right to speak about issues that interest or concern them,” Stephane Dujarric, the spokesperson for Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, said on Thursday in answer to a question about Chopra Jonas.

“Their personal views or actions do not necessarily reflect those of UNICEF,” he added. “When they speak on behalf of the UNICEF, we expect them to adhere to UNICEF’s evidence-based impartial positions.”

On the work front, Chopra Jonas will be seen in Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink.
