Romania @ UN

The candidature of Romania to a non-permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) for a two-year mandate (2020-2021).

Romania submitted, in 2006, its candidacy for a new mandate as a non-permanent member in the United Nations Security Council, for the seat allocated to the Eastern-European Group, between 2020-2021. The elections will take place in June 2019.

From the moment of its accession to the UN in 1955, Romania held four mandates as a non-permanent member in the UN Security Council (1962,1967-1977,1990-1991, 2004-2005).

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued “Romania’s Strategy towards obtaining a new mandate of non-permanent member in the UN Security Council between 2020-2021”, on the premise on which it adopted “The action plan for promoting Romania’s candidacy to the UN Security Council for the 2019 elections”.

The candidacy campaign for new mandate as a non-permanent member for the UN SC will be conducted under the slogan: “Romania: a Long-Term Engagement for Peace, Justice and Development”, representing an ambitious foreign policy goal for our country.
