55 nations back India’s bid for non-permanent UNSC seat

Jun 26, 2019 12:59 IST

Fifty-five countries of the Asia-Pacific group at the United Nations have unanimously endorsed India’s candidature for a non-permanent seat of the Security Council for a two-year term in 2021-2022, Syed Akbaruddin, who is India’s permanent representative at the UN, said. Until now, India has been a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for seven terms and most recently in 2011–2012 under the leadership of former Ambassador Hardeep Singh Puri. Elections for five non-permanent members of the 15-nation Council will be held around June next year.
