United Nations – Election of five new non-permanent members of the Security Council (15 October,.15)


France congratulates Egypt, Japan, Senegal, Ukraine, and Uruguay on their election as non-permanent members of the UN Security Council.

They will serve on the Council for a period of two years from January 1, 2016.

We welcome the prospect of working closely with them on all issues addressed in this forum, which, under the UN Charter, has primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security.
