goodbye Ambassador Khalilzad

It's Zalmay Khalilzad's last day in the Security Council, and French Ambassador Jean-Maurice Ripert just gave him an effusive-to-the-point-of-being-awkward farewell speech in the Council chamber. He said the Council would miss Khalilzad's warmth, talent, friendship and "sonorous laughter."

I don't think they did this on John Bolton's last day.
