Jordan assumes UN Security Council chair as conflicts persist

Published: 01.01.14, 00:29 / Israel News

Jordan takes over the UN Security Council presidency on Wednesday, the first day of its two-year stint on a 15-nation body struggling to cope with conflicts in Syria, South Sudan, Central African Republic, Mali and elsewhere.

 

Jordan will join Chad, Chile, Lithuania and Nigeria on the council until Dec. 31, 2015. The UNGA elected Amman in early December as a replacement for Saudi Arabia after Riyadh turned down the seat in protest at the council's failure to end the Syrian war and act on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and other Middle East issues.
