Sir Jeremy Greenstock served in the British Diplomatic Service from 1969 to 2004, with postings in New York, Washington, Paris, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. He was Political Director of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office from 1996-1998 and Britain’s Permanent Representative at the United Nations in New York from 1998-2003. His retirement was then postponed to enable him to serve as the UK’s Special Representative for Iraq between September 2003 and March 2004. He was knighted in June 1998. As Political Director, he was closely involved in efforts to stabilise the Balkans after the Bosnian war and, as UK Ambassador in New York, he was directly involved in some of the key decisions on Iraq, in the UN’s work to counter terrorism and in the Security Council’s struggle to reduce conflicts in Africa.
