The UN Security Council Allocated Seats for South Korea in 2024-25

Korea to Win the Seats for the UN Security Council

On the morning of June 6 in the U.S., the General Assembly of United Nations (UNGA) met in plenary session at the UN headquarters in New York to elect non-permanent members to the Security Council to serve the 2024–2025 term.

South Korea was the only candidate in the Asia-Pacific region for this election, and it won with strong support from 180 of the 192 member states (with the exception of North Korea and others).

Along with free worlds like the United States and Japan at the UN Security Council, South Korea will coordinate international reactions to North Korea’s nuclear threat, the suppression of residents’ human rights, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, China’s military danger and more issues.

Korea Rejoins the UNSC

Korea joined the UN in 1991 and has held two non-permanent Security Council seats, in 1996–1997 and 2013–2014, respectively.

After 11 years, South Korea will rejoin the Security Council for the third time the following year.

The Year of 2024-2025

Sierra Leone and Algeria from the group of African, the Republic of Korea from the group of Asia Pacific states, Guyana from the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, will fill the seats of non-permanent members of the UN Security Council.

What Will Korea Do?

In the context of current global dynamics, South Korea’s registration to the Security Council is extremely significant as tensions surrounding the Korean peninsula are rising due to increased military provocations, the potential for North Korea’s seventh nuclear test, and growing worries about China’s invasion of Taiwan.
