Cambodia actively seeks supports from friendly countries for UNSC seat


08:32, September 01, 2011

PHNOM PENH, Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- Cambodia has been actively seeking supports from friendly countries to secure a seat as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) in 2013 and 2014 mandate.

During a meeting with the British Ambassador to Cambodia Andrew Stephen Mace on Wednesday, Cambodian Minister of Foreign Affairs Hor Namhong asked the United Kingdom to support Cambodia for the seat.

"In response, the ambassador said Cambodia should be voted for the seat," Koy Kuong, spokesman for the Ministry told reporters after the meeting.

He added that so far more than 100 countries have expressed their supports for Cambodia's candidacy for the seat.

The vote for the non-permanent members of the UNSC will be held in 2012.

Cambodia became the member of the United Nations in December, 1955; since then, it has never had any post at the world body.
