Indonesia Runs for Non-Permanent Member of UN Security Council
Indonesia Foreign Affairs Minister Retno Marsudi said Indonesia is running for a member of the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council for 2024-2026. Indonesia is also nominating itself as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for 2029-2030.
"All preparations start now. Indonesia really hopes for the support of all UN member states for the nomination plan," Retno said in the 2023 Foreign Minister's Annual Press Statement (PPTM) at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Office, Jakarta, Wednesday.
She said Indonesia has the courage to return as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council because it believes in its great contribution to the world. Indonesia's UN Human Rights Council membership just ended last year. Meanwhile, membership in the UN Security Council ended in 2020.
