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.”
