Election of five non-permanent members of the Security Council

St. Vincent have secured a seat in the United Nations Security Council which is also the highest decision making body from U.N. having other major nations as well. Taiwan has now congratulated the Carribean ally St. Vincent as well as the Grenadines on securing this win in the U.N.

Now, this congratulatory message from Taiwan was given out as a tweet from Taiwan’s Foreign Minister Joseph Wu. He tweeted a message of congratulations to the Grenadines Prime Minister Ralph as well as the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines for the victory.

Here is his tweet:

“Congratulations @ComradeRalph & the government & people of StVincentAndTheGrenadines,” Wu wrote. “#Taiwan is tremendously proud of your accomplishment & has every confidence you will successfully promote international peace & security.”

As for the victory, United Nations held the elections last Friday in its General Assembly. Here, St. Vincent and the Grenadines were elected as one of the 10 non-permanent seats in the otherwise permanent 15-member panel of the Security Council. Talking about St. Vincent and the Grenadines, it is a Caribbean country with multi-islands. It is spread across 389 square kilometers and has a population of about 110,000.

St. Vincent and the Grenadines also made history by winning the non-permanent seat at the UN Security Council. Because it is the smallest nation ever to secure a seat as per U.N.’s official press release. Apart from St. Vincent and the Grenadines, other countries were also elected to a non-permanent seat at the U.N. Security Council. This includes Estonia, Niger, Tunisia and Vietnam.

The elected countries will officially take up their seats in January 2020 as the previous countries will have to leave their seats which include Cote d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Kuwait, Peru and Poland. Currently, the UN Security Council’s permanent seats are occupied by Russia, China, United States, United Kingdom and France. It is interesting to note that St. Vincent and the Grenadines won their seat against El Salvador by 185:6 votes.
