Algeria declared its support for Kenya’s candidature for the non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council in the election slated for June next year.
Speaking when she presented her credentials to President Uhuru Kenyatta, incoming Algerian Ambassador to Kenya Selma Malika Haddadi said her country is convinced that the country is best placed to advance Africa’s interests at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).
“Algeria fully and actively supports Kenya’s candidacy. We are convinced that Kenya is best placed to promote Africa’s interests at the UNSC,” Ambassador Haddadi said.
The incoming Algerian Ambassador said Kenya’s commitment and contribution to regional and international peace and security makes the country Africa’s best option for the UN body.
She said Kenya’s re-election as a member of the African Union (AU) Peace and Security Council as well as the endorsement of its candidature by the AU was a testimony of the country’s front-runner position for the UNSC seat.
