Kevin Rudd has congratulated former Portugese prime minister Antonio Guterres on all but scoring the job he wanted - to be head of the United Nations.

The former Australian prime minister, whose nomination was not endorsed by the Turnbull government, says the endorsement by the UN Security Council is a tribute to Mr Guterres and Portugal.

"Deepest congratulations to Antonio Guterres on election as UN SG," Mr Rudd tweeted on Thursday.
