For the sixth time, Germany is a member of the UN Security Council for a two year term. To mark the start of Germany’s presidency in April, the Federal Foreign Office is presenting an exhibition called #strongerUNited – Germany in the UN Security Council, which focuses on the Security Council and Germany’s priorities for its membership.
Minister of State Niels Annen will open the exhibition at 5.45 p.m. on 3 April in the Federal Foreign Office’s Atrium. Ahead of the opening of the exhibition, he drew attention to the great trust shown by the 184 countries that voted in June 2018 for Germany as a non-permanent member of the Security Council.
Our aim is to focus our endeavours on preserving and strengthening the multilateral world order. After the end of the Second World War, Germany benefited from this world order more than any other country. We are currently witnessing the threat of the erosion of international rules and norms. We cannot accept that.
During the exhibition, the Federal Foreign Office’s Atrium will be transformed for several weeks into the UN Security Council Chamber by the horseshoe table and Per Krogh’s murals. Visitors are welcome to sit down at the negotiating table and to learn more about the Security Council and Germany’s aims for its membership.
