Argentina elected to represent Latin America at UN Security Summit
Argentina received support across Latin America and the Caribbean today to become the non-permanent representative for the region at the UN Security Summit for the 2013-2014 period, the Foreign Ministry informed today.
“The Republic of Argentina is committed to representing all of the relevant topics for the region and the Security Summit and its voice will be the voice of the people,” the government assured through a communiqué sent from the Foreign Ministry.
It continued to say that Argentina “received today the unanimous support of Latin America and the Caribbean at the United Nations, for the candidacy as a non-permanent member of the Security Council during the 2013-2014 period.”
“President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and the Argentine people thank all Latin American countries and the Caribbean for this acknowledgment,” the communiqué furthered.
The election of the 15 non-permanent state members for the UN Security Summit will take place in October, tying in with the 67th General UN Assembly.
