Guyana and Algeria seek non-permanent membership on the United Nations Security Council for 2024-2025 term

By Breaking Belize News Staff: According to the Caribbean National Weekly, Guyana has announced its ambition to secure a seat as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for the 2024-2025 term, alongside Algeria. Hugh Todd, the country’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, confirms Guyana’s enduring active involvement in the global organization, reinforcing its stance as a committed member of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).

The elections are scheduled to take place on Tuesday, with both nations hoping to secure their seats on the influential Security Council.

Addressing an audience in New York, Minister Todd set out Guyana’s vision and priorities for its potential membership in the Council, emphasizing Guyana’s commitment to upholding the rule of law and adhering to the principles outlined in the Charter of the United Nations. If successful in the election, Guyana would become the second CARICOM country to serve on the UN Security Council, following the two-year term of St Vincent and the Grenadines that concluded in 2022.

As a small state, Todd expressed Guyana’s readiness to contribute significantly to the Security Council’s work, working in harmony with all member countries toward peace and prosperity.

Further discussions took place when Todd met with Ahmed Attaf, Algeria’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and National Community Abroad, in New York. A government statement revealed that both ministers are optimistic about collaborating within the Security Council, given their shared goal of the election.

Recognizing the common understanding of the challenges faced by developing nations, Todd expressed the belief that Guyana and Algeria can offer valuable and meaningful contributions to the Council and the United Nations as a whole.

In response, Attaf acknowledged the intricacies of the current international order, including political and economic systems profoundly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. He noted that the two countries, given their shared history in the Non-Aligned Movement and Group of 77 and China, would have another chance to cooperate should they secure Council membership. He further emphasized that council members would provide a platform to advocate for developmental issues, international cooperation, and contributions to peace and security.
