U.S. Mission to the United Nations

The equivalent of an embassy from the United States to the United Nations. It promotes U.S. interests before the UN and, like the missions of four other countries, has veto power over Security Council resolutions. Because the U.S. is a founding member of the UN, the mission has existed since 1947.
