The Kingdom of the Netherlands has a longstanding commitment to the UN. We believe strongly in our partnership for peace, justice and development with the UN and its Member States. By seeking election to the UN Security Council for the 2017-2018 period, we aim to make an even bigger contribution to building a more secure, just and prosperous world.
The UN is the single most influential organisation for peace, justice and development worldwide. Representing 193 countries, the UN has a unique source of legitimacy and the capacity to make a real difference in the lives and livelihoods of people and communities across the globe. The UN is the destination of choice for all those who want a better world.
