Martin Kimani, Kenya’s permanent representative to the UN in New York, has declared that Kenya’s two-year term on the Security Council has come to an end.
On December 31, 2022, Kimani said, “Kenya’s two-year term in the Security Council would come to an end in six hours. I’ll share some of the crucial lessons we discovered in the New Year. But for the time being, all I can think about is how grateful I am for the chance.
When Kenya was a member of the Security Council, it held the rotating monthly chair for October 2021 and concentrated on offering suggestions and answers for world peace and security, particularly in the problematic Sahel and Horn of Africa regions. Kimani also stressed how crucial it is for Africa and the UN Security Council to collaborate closely.
In addition to his involvement with the UNSC, former president Uhuru Kenyatta met one-on-one with Antonio Guterres, the UN secretary-general.
The global reaction to the Covid-19 outbreak and the signing of a trade agreement between Kenya’s private sector and a group of American corporations were two of the many topics covered by the two leaders.
Overall, Kimani expressed his appreciation for the chance to represent Kenya in the UN Security Council and promised that Kenya will continue to support international efforts to maintain peace and security.
He stated, “We will continue to be a great partner in the international community and we are happy of the work we have done over the previous two years.
