The position is as she described it. She hasn't been appointed as 'alien ambassador', but believes (as do I) that the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs and the UN Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space may be appropriate places to discuss issues relating to the detection of extraterrestrial life.
