Indonesia vows to be responsibl­e on Security Council


Indonesia has been elected from the Asia-Pacific Group as a non-permanent member on the United Nations Security Council. The world’s largest Muslim country secured its place after a run-off with the Maldives for the Group’s seat.

Indonesia’s Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said her country would work towards creating a global ecosystem of peace and stability, combatting terrorism and radicalism. The Minister said among the priorities of Indonesia’s work on the council would be “advancing peacekeepi­ng and peacebuild­ing.”
