Ghana will be using its position as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council to help with conflict management and peace building in countries where there are conflicts across the globe, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchway has said.
The West African country was elected as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council after intense lobbying for the position.
The beacon of peace on the continent will serve on the council from 2022 – 2023.
“Ghana will use its membership to pursue conflict prevention, post conflict reconstruction and strengthening of governance, leveraging on our previous and current experience as Chair of ECOWAS as well as our active membership of AU”, Ayorkor Botchwey said at a press conference.
According to her, she is hopeful other countries will learn from Ghana’s experience in conflict management as a result of this.
