Security Council

In June 2021, the UAE was elected to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) for the 2022-2023 term. The UAE is focusing on promoting stability in our region and beyond, promoting women’s empowerment, harnessing the potential of technological innovation, and addressing the security implications of climate change and pandemic preparedness.

The UAE is a symbol of what can be achieved through collaboration. As a country that constantly looks to the future, we have taken bold steps that accelerate positive changes in our region. As a relatively young country, we are uniquely positioned to help developing countries achieve their own visions for growth, which has led us to become a major donor to economic development and humanitarian response. As a commercial and creative melting pot in a global transit hub, we want to help nations work together to seize the opportunities of technology in order to achieve human progress.

The UAE has a history of active cooperation on the most pressing global challenges. In everything we do, and especially in diplomacy, the UAE has been guided since its founding by the deeply held belief that we are stronger united than apart. This belief is the foundation of our approach to achieving international peace and security. A multilateral approach is more critical than ever to respond to increasingly complex threats to global peace and stability.

As a member of the Security Council, the UAE is working with all Member States to reinvigorate global cooperation and leverage the UN system to realize its full potential to create more resilient institutions and societies.
