The James Bond actor has become the first global advocate for the elimination of mines and explosive hazards.
He will spend the next three years raising awareness of the United Nations Mine Action Service, and securing political and financial support for the project.
Meeting with Craig at the United Nations headquarters in New York, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said: “You have been given a licence to kill (as James Bond), I’m now giving you a licence to save.”
Craig replied: “I am honored to accept this role, I’m humbled that I will get the chance to work next to people who are risking their lives every day to help ordinary people live ordinary lives. I will do my very best.”
