South Korea is set to take on the rotating presidency of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) next month, marking its first time in the role since May 2014, according to Seoul’s top envoy to the UN.

Ambassador Hwang Joon-kook, South Korea’s Permanent Representative to the UN, announced at a press conference that South Korea, currently serving as a non-permanent member of the UNSC, will preside over the council for the entire month of June.

The presidency of the UNSC rotates monthly among its 15 member states.

Hwang emphasized the significance of this role, highlighting that it provides South Korea with a platform to influence key international security issues and contribute to global peace and stability.

The country aims to utilize its presidency to address pressing global challenges, including regional conflicts, nuclear disarmament, and humanitarian crises.

This announcement comes as part of South Korea’s broader efforts to bolster its international presence and diplomatic influence.

South Korea has been actively involved in various UN missions and peacekeeping operations, demonstrating its commitment to multilateralism and international cooperation.
