Reynders takes key step in Belgium’s UN Security Council bidTuesday, 27 March 2018 15:21
Tuesday’s meeting was of particular importance for Belgium’s candidature for a non-permanent seat on the Security Council.
At the end of their meeting, they described their discussions as “very positive”. According to the Foreign Minister, Belgium has shown that it is prepared to collaborate with the important reforms of the United Nations. He said Belgium’s King Philippe and Queen Mathilde would add their contribution by going to New York on the 24 and 25 April for a high-level meeting on peacekeeping missions and the stabilization of conflict zones.
Belgium, spearheaded by its Foreign Minister, has been conducting a campaign for close to two years now to obtain one of the ten non-permanent seats on the Security Council for 2019-2020, of which Germany and Israel are also candidates. The decision will be made in June. To join the Council, Belgium must obtain the support of two-thirds of its members.
