26 , 2016 | Source: Antara News

Indonesia will continue to lobby for becoming a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) for the 2019 to 2020 period to maintain regional and world stability.

 

 

"Indonesia has proposed itself as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). The campaign will be started soon to seek support," the Head of the Secretariat of the Vice President, Mohammad Oemar said here on Thursday.

The statement was conveyed after a meeting between Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi and Vice President Jusuf Kalla.

In the last three years, Indonesia has sought support from friendly countries for a membership of the UNSC.

Oemar pointed out that the Security Council is the most decisive institution in the United Nations.

"If Indonesia becomes a non-permanent member of the UNSC, it can speak directly to the permanent members for the sake of global peace and security," he affirmed.

Indonesia officially became the 60th member of the United Nations on September 28, 1950, less than a year after the recognition of Indonesias sovereignty by the Netherlands at the Dutch-Indonesian Round Table Conference in The Hague (August 23 to November 2, 1949).

Indonesia has been elected as a non-permanent member of the UNSC thrice.

It was first elected for the period of 1974-75, for the second time in 1995-1996 and for the third time in 2007-2008, when Indonesia was elected with 158 votes out of the 192 member states, who have the right to vote in the U.N. General Assembly.(*)
