Slovenia hopes for Turkmenistan's support in UN Security Council elections

Slovenia has asked Turkmenistan to support it in the elections to the UN Security Council. This was reported today by the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan after the meeting of the Permanent Representative of the country to the UN Aksoltan Ataeva with the Secretary of State of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Slovenia Samuel Zbogar.

"At the beginning of the conversation, Žbogar said that Slovenia had nominated its candidacy to the UN Security Council for the period 2024-2025 and asked for support in the elections to be held in June 2023," the report said.

In turn, Ataeva noted Turkmenistan's bilateral cooperation with the Republic of Slovenia in health care, telecommunications and transport. She also spoke about her country's intention to submit a draft resolution on declaring 2023 the International Year of Dialogue as a Guarantee of Peace to the 77th session of the UNGA, and expressed hope that Slovenia would support the proposal.

Recall that the United Nations Security Council consists of 15 states, five of which - Russia, China, the United States, the United Kingdom and France - are permanent members of the Council and have the right of veto. Ten non-permanent members of the Council are elected for two-year terms. Five of them are replaced annually.
