UAE, Arab League back Saudi on UN Council Move

(Abu Dhabi) – UAE has followed with great interest the decision of Saudi Arabia to turn down a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council, said UAE Foreign Minister His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan. “The United Arab Emirates understands the situation of general frustration that led the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to make this decision, and the reasons given in the official statement of the Saudi Foreign Ministry, including the inaction of the Security Council on a number of regional historical and urgent issues. This inaction continues to lead to several negative consequences for the security and stability of the region and the rights and lives of its peoples,” Sheikh Abdullah said.
Sheikh Abdullah said that “based on this, the United Arab Emirates backs the Saudi decision as a judicious and prudent stance which seeks to address the failure of the mechanisms of international teamwork and thus establish more fair and effective foundations for the way the United Nations Security Council deals with regional issues.”
