Being a member of the Security Council brings with it an important responsibility to help prevent and resolve conflicts around the world. I am proud of the role Ireland has played on a wide range of issues since taking up our seat in January 2021, including extending the mandate for Syrian cross border humanitarian operations, leading the Council’s response to the crisis in Ethiopia and our facilitation of the Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA). I am confident we can continue to make a difference as we approach the task of chairing the Security Council this month.
Today, Ireland takes over the Presidency of the UN Security Council 🇮🇪🇺🇳
