Dominican Republic to promote UN Security Council bid at NAM summit
font size    

The Dominican Republic will promote its efforts to win a non-permanent seat in the UN Security Council at the upcoming Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit, said reports reaching here on Wednesday from Santo Domingo, capital of the Caribbean country.

Dominican President Leonel Fernandez will push the application, said Veri Candelario, a spokesman for the Dominican Foreign Ministry, adding that the Dominican Republic has an "aggressive strategy" for its bid for one of the two non-permanent seats held by Latin American and Caribbean countries in the 15-member council.

Costa Rica is expected to join the race for the seat, which is to be vacated by Peru.

The spokesman did not say his country would support Venezuela or Guatemala, which are racing for another non-permanent seat, now held by Argentina.

NAM, established in 1961, groups 116 countries. The 14th NAM summit is scheduled to be held in Cuba this month. .
