Ethiopia Accomplished Significant Achievements in UNSC, Says MoFA (December 28, 2018)

Addis Ababa December 27/2018 Ethiopia has accomplished significant achievements as a Non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) during the last two years, according to Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The country’s term in UNSC will end on the 31st of December 2018 and South Africa will take over the seat, MoFA Spokesperson Meles Alem said today.
He said the nation has played significant role in echoing voices of African countries to influence decisions.
Meles noted that Ethiopia has also exerted diplomatic efforts in Ethio-Eritrea rapprochement and has been able to showcase its reputation as a major pillar in the continent’s peace and security architecture.
Besides ensuring its national interests, “Ethiopia has tried to be the voice of reason at the UNSC, calling for unity and consensus in responding to some of the most difficult and complex peace and security challenges of our time,” the spokesperson pointed out.
Ethiopia’s policy priorities were ensuring national advantage and security, global peace keeping operations, realizing UN-AU system integration and fighting against terrorism, and played outstanding performance in each priority, according to Meles.
Ethiopia’s role in UNSC from 1967-1968, 1989-1990 and 2017-2018 has helped in protecting peace and security as well as passing decisions and resolutions.
