Ukraine is to take over the UN Security Council in February 2017, tweeted Volodymyr Yelchenko, the country’s permanent representative in the United Nations.
‘Having elected new members of the Council for the next two years, we finally found out that Ukraine will be chairing the Council in Feb 2017. We’re getting ready for that’, the diplomat stressed.
Yelchenko remembered that the indicative voting for new UN Secretary General will take place in July. ‘Japan will be chairing this month. It’s going to be interesting, as there are plenty of candidates for this post’, he wrote.
