Crown Prince Haakon launches Norway’s candidacy for the UN Security Council
Crown Prince Haakon and Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide held a press conference, emphasising that Norway has national interests in defending the UN and international law. “It is important to have an international system of rules, negotiations and constructive dialogue. Therefore, the UN is important. I have been an ambassador for the UN Development Fund (UNDP) for 14 years. Through those years I have seen how the UN works at the country level, and what good efforts the UN is doing for health, education and fighting poverty”, said the Crown Prince to the press. Norway has been a candidate for a seat on the council since the announcement in 2007, but the campaign itself begins now until the decision comes in June 2020.
