FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
We congratulate Azerbaijan, Guatemala, Morocco, Pakistan and Togo on their election as non-permanent members of the UN Security Council for 2012 and 2013. We look forward to working closely with these countries to support the principles of the UN Charter, contribute to the effectiveness and efficiency of the Council, and uphold its role in maintaining international peace and security. In the coming year, the Security Council will address many pressing global challenges, including nuclear non-proliferation, counter-terrorism, conflict prevention and resolution, promotion of democracy and human rights, and the oversight of complex UN field operations, and the United States looks forward to strong partnership with the incoming members.
