Australia concluded its two year term on the United Nations Security Council having served with distinction and with a reputation as a straight-talking, pragmatic, and outcomes-focused Member.
We used our term to support Australia’s core national security interests, including reinforcing our key alliance and strategic relationships, and to enhance our international influence by making a practical, constructive contribution across the Council’s agenda.
By any measure, our term was a success and serving with distinction at the world’s top table on international peace and security enhanced Australia’s international reputation.
