Seychelles ask Comoros for support to obtain a non-permanent member of the Security Council of the UN
Seychelles want to get a seat as non-permanent member in the Security Council of the United Nations, including the role played by the archipelago in the fight against maritime piracy in the Indian Ocean area.

The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs of Seychelles, Barry Faure, has visited a few days ago Moroni in the Comoros for a 48-hour diplomatic mission to seek the support of the Comorian authorities to this candidacy of the UN Security Council.

The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs of Seychelles, Barry Faure, was received by the Comorian Vice President Nourdine Bourhane, which provided the interim of the President Dhoinine Ikililou, went this week to represent his country at the 68th ordinary session of the General Assembly of the United Nations in New York, as shown in the alwatwan.net site.

"With still more pressing needs to address today's challenges, such as piracy, peace and security, climate change, Seychelles have much to contribute to the daily work of one of the key United Nations bodies", stated in August 2012 the Seychellois  president James Michel.

The UN Security Council is composed of 15 members, including five permanent (China, United States, France, United Kingdom and Russia) possessing a right of veto and 10 non-permanent members, elected in turn by the General Assembly of the United Nations for two years and renewed by half every year.
