The A Partnership for National Unity + Alliance For Change (APNU+AFC) Opposition on Tuesday welcomed the announcement of Guyana once again securing a non-permanent seat on the United Nations (UN) Security Council.
In a statement, Shadow Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Amanza Walton-Desir noted that the international security landscape presents complex challenges that require concerted global efforts to address.
“We in the APNU+AFC believe in managing these challenges through the rule of international law and constructive dialogue among nations.
Guyana’s appointment to the Security Council provides us with an opportunity to advocate for these principles and contribute meaningfully to the Council’s work.”
Guyana was elected to the Council on Tuesday and, starting January 1, 2024, will represent Latin America and the Caribbean bloc on the international peace and security body.
The Security Council comprises 15 members, including five permanent members and 10 members are non-permanent members who are elected to two-year terms.
Guyana served the Security Council from 1975 to 1976 and then again from 1982 to 1983.
