Angie up for promotion?

UNP ImageAngelina Jolie is negotiating for a promotion at the UN refugee agency where she now serves as a goodwill ambassador.

The actress said she and the agency are still working out the details of a new, expanded role for her in the worldwide refugee crisis.

"We are looking at a few countries in the world," Jolie told reporters. "We're hoping to discuss it in the next few weeks but we want to research it properly."

Among the roles under discussion is special envoy on the refugee crisis affecting Afghans fleeing for Pakistan and Iran, which host 2.7 million Afghan refugees.

UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres told the agency's executive committee that the world-famous actress could serve as his special envoy "to mobilise strong international support" during particularly dire situations.

Jolie told diplomats that her work for them has been "moving, sometimes heartbreaking, but always rewarding, and unforgettable".

She described refugees she has met as "the most vulnerable people in the world, and they are also the most resilient people in the world".
