Azerbaijan to Take Over UN Security Council Presidency Again

Azerbaijan Will Take Over the UN Security Council Presidency from Australia on October 1.

This is Azerbaijan's second presidency of the UN Security Council.

According to the UN Charter, Security Council is the main body responsible for the protection of peace and security in the world. The Security Council has 15 members, 5 of them being permanent members (U.S., Russia, Britain, China and France). The General Assembly elects 10 non-permanent members for 2 years.

Azerbaijan was elected non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the first time in October 2011 and presided over the SC in May 2012.
