NEW ZEALAND PUSHES BID FOR UN SECURITY COUNCIL SEAT

0

WELLINGTON: New Zealand Prime Minister John Key and Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully will be in New York together this month, pressing the country’s case for a seat on the Security Council during the United Nations General Assembly. Key will also be speaking during the general debate on September 26 during the opening week of the General Assembly, which is the single largest gathering of world leaders. New Zealand is a candidate for a non-permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council in 2015-2016. “Small states like New Zealand need to have a place at the UN’s top table. New Zealand shares the desire of other countries to see a strong and effective United Nations,” Key said in a statement Monday.
