On the first day of the UN Security Council, UAE declares pledges for the years 2022-2023

The United Arab Emirates revealed its obligations for the next two years as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday, a day after formally taking up the seat. 

Working to secure peace, advance inclusivity, create resilience, and spur innovation are among the UAE’s Stronger United commitments, which will govern the UAE’s engagement with the Security Council and UN member states throughout its time. 

The UN General Assembly chose the UAE, along with Albania, Brazil, Gabon, and Ghana, as non-permanent members of the 15-member council for the 2022-2023 term in June. 

The United Arab Emirates will represent Arab countries at the United Nations Security Council, and it has pledged to strengthen collaboration with regional groups such as the Arab League and the African Union. 

The UAE will serve as president of the Security Council twice during its two-year tenure, in March and June of next year, where it will determine the agenda and head the standing committees.
