Germany for United Nations Security Council 2019/2020
On June 27, in an official speech at the German Institute of Global and Area Studies ‘GIGA’ Foreign Minister Dr. Steinmeier announced Germany’s Candidacy for the UN Security Council 2019/2020.
“We need the United Nations and the Security Council more than ever in our efforts to promote peace in these troubled times. And although the UN Security Council has increasingly been on the receiving end of criticism and is, unfortunately, blocked on occasions, it nonetheless remains the only body capable of adopting conflict prevention and peace keeping measures that are binding in international law. Despite all scepticism, in the last year the Council has unanimously adopted 60 out of 63 resolutions. The Security Council is the central global crisis manager” elaborated Minister Dr.Steinmeier, Hamburg June 27, 2016 © Federal Foreign Office

Germany for United Nations Security Council 2019/20
are the Concepts of Germany’s Foreign Policy which are promised, by German Government, to be extended firm and actively, to its Seat at the UN Security Council for 2019/2020.
Excerpt of the speech by Foreign Minister Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier, in the GIGA Distinguished Speaker Lecture Series, Hamburg June 27, 2016:
“The next step in our approach is: long‑term Peace is not possible without Justice. Last year, with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the International community adopted what could be described as a global company agreement. It is intended to prepare what Willy Brandt called for as early as 1979 in the visionary report of the so‑called North‑South Commission: an order for Peace and Justice. For in a globalised World, there can be no Justice without Peace, and no Sustainable Peace without Justice.
- That is why we support the goals of the 2030 Agenda.
- That is why we work to promote the Rule of Law. Justice comes before power. The International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, which is situated here in Hamburg, also, of course, pursues this goal.
- And that is why International promotion of Human Rights is a key pillar of our Foreign Policy. And an integral part of our engagement in the United Nations! The violation of Human Rights is often an early warning of an imminent conflict. For this reason we are striving to foster closer cooperation between the Security Council in New York and the Human Rights Council in Geneva.” June 27, 2016 © Federal Foreign Office
