India looks forward to being back in the UN Security Council, External Affairs S Jaishankar said here on Thursday as he declared the country’s candidature as non-permanent member for the 2028-29 term.

Jaishankar arrived here on Tuesday to preside over two signature events on counter-terrorism and reformed multilateralism held under India’s current Presidency of the UN Security Council, before the curtains come down this month on the country’s two-year tenure as elected member of the 15-nation top organ of the world body.

“I’m glad to inform you that we have declared our candidature for our next tenure at the Council for 2028-29 and we look forward to being back,” he said as India prepares to wrap up its 2021-22 tenure as elected Council member on December 31.

Addressing reporters at the UN Security Council stakeout after chairing the signature event on counterterrorism, Jaishankar said that December is the last month of India’s current membership of the Security Council, the eighth time that India sat at the powerful horse-shoe table.

“During this eighth innings of ours, we have attempted to bring many themes of contemporary relevance like maritime security, technology in UN peacekeeping, reforms of the UN and counterterrorism to the center of the agenda and of the debate in the UN,” he said.
