Ethiopia begins non-permanent (two-year term) serving on UN Security Council

Ethiopia has joined the United Nations Security Council. The African nation is serving a two-year stint on the 15-member council, replacing Angola. Ethiopia already plays a considerable role in UN affairs, and is hoping to gain greater influence over the next two years. CGTN’s Nick Harper reports from New York.

Ethiopia was elected to the Council with 185 out of 190 votes cast. The council has the primary responsibility for international peace and security. They replaced Angola, the last African representative on the Council.
