Key priorities Ukraine to work on as member of the UN Security Council
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin mentioned the key objectives Ukraine is going to promote within the Security Council of the United Nations
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko named priority orientations of Ukraine's work as a member of the UN Security Council.
“The improvement of UN peacekeeping, the fight against terrorism and its manifestations, the provision of legally binding security assurances to countries that voluntarily got rid of nuclear weapons - all this will be among the priorities of our future work in the Security Council," the President said in his address on the occasion of Ukraine's election as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council.
Earlier, Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin stated that Ukraine will make all efforts within the UN Security Council to bring to justice those responsible for Malaysian Boeing MH17 tragedy.
"In the UN Security Council we will fight both for the world peace and for the world security, but also, for the questions which are of particular importance to Ukraine. And, of course, the tragedy of the plane MH17 is one of them, because, first of all, the guilty of this tragedy must be brought before the court, they must pay for their actions. The investigation must be impartial and fair, and we hope that we will be able to implement it through the tools of the UN Security Council,” Klimkin said at the briefing in New York broadcasted over 112 Ukraine.
Nevertheless, Ukraine as a new non-permanent member, except for the punishment of guilty in MH17 tragedy, will promote other important issues, Ukraine's Foreign Minister stated.
“This [MH17 tragedy –ed.] is not the only issue that we will promote as part of our positions in the UN Security Council. We have many friends and partners in the UN Security Council, and together with them we will promote peace and security throughout the world. Now we understand the real importance of peace and security,” he stressed.
As it was reported before, Ukraine became non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the term of 2016-2017 years.
