Ethiopia’s Two Years Stint At UNSC Successful, Says Ambassador Taye (January 02, 2019)

Permanent Representative of Ethiopia to the United Nations, Ambassador Taye Atske-Selassie said Ethiopia has played a key role during its two years stint at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).
He briefed the media today regarding Ethiopia’s two-year term as a non-permanent member of the Security Council.
He said Ethiopia has played a key role during its two years stint not only shouldering responsibilities in regional and continental issues, but also in global matters of mutual concern highlighting Ethiopia’s proactive and consistent activities in the Horn, among others in UNIFSA, UNAMID, and AMISOM.
The lifting of sanctions on Eritrea and IGAD-led peace process in South Sudan has depicted Ethiopia’s unflinching commitment towards positive developments in the region being a vocal for continental peace and security architecture, he added.
Ambassador Taye also accentuated that Ethiopia for many years has been one of the steadfast leading contributor of UN peacekeeping, providing a contingent of 12,000 personnel, both men and women.
Ethiopia joined the United Nations on 13 November 1945 and has been an active member since 1945, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
