The role of the Ambassador and Permanent Representative of France to the United Nations is as the leader of the French delegation to the United Nations in New York and as head of the Permanent Mission of France to the UN. The position has the rank and status of an Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary and is also the permanent representative of France in the United Nations Security Council.
