Pakistan Wins Non-Permanent Seat on UNSC with a Significant Majority in UNGA Vote

Pakistan secured 182 out of 193 votes in the General Assembly, surpassing the required 124 votes. The announcement of the five non-permanent seats, including Pakistan, Denmark, Greece, Panama, and Somalia, replacing Japan, Ecuador, Malta, Mozambique, and Switzerland, was met with applause. Pakistan will take over Japan's Asian seat on January 1, 2025, for a two-year term, marking its eighth term.

Munir Akram, Pakistan’s UN representative, highlighted Pakistan’s commitment to promoting the UN Charter's principles. Pakistan aims to work with other council members to prevent conflicts and contribute to peaceful settlements. Pakistan's past terms on the council include 2012-13, 2003-04, 1993-94, 1983-84, 1976-77, 1968-69, and 1952-53.

Pakistan joins the UNSC during a time of global challenges and plans to focus on peace and security in South Asia, self-determination for Palestine and Kashmir, normalization in Afghanistan, equitable solutions to African security challenges, and enhancing UN peacekeeping operations. Pakistan has been a significant contributor to UN peacekeeping missions for over 50 years, currently deploying over 4,000 troops worldwide.

The new members will join the five permanent members and the five non-permanent members elected last year. Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif and Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Mohammad Ishaq Dar expressed pride and commitment to promoting peace, stability, and cooperation globally. They appreciated the teamwork of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Pakistan Mission to the UN, and all missions abroad.
