Ambassador-at-Large

An ambassador-at-large is a diplomat of the highest rank or a minister who is accredited to represent his country internationally.

Unlike an United Nations and the European Union. In some cases an ambassador-at-large may even be specifically assigned a role to advise and assist the state or a government in particular issues.
