UK assumes leadership of Security Council for March

Listen /

Sir Mark Lyall Grant

The United Kingdom plans to shine a spotlight on several key issues during the month of March when it will hold the revolving presidency of the Security Council.

British Ambassador to the UN, Sir Mark Lyall Grant says the UK will hold three formal events in the Security Council during the month. One will be a ministerial level meeting on change in the Middle East that several Arab officials have been invited to. The other two special events will focus on Somalia as well as the conflict that still exists between Sudan and South Sudan.

Sir Mark Lyall Grant also says he expects the council to discuss Syria and possibly  take up another draft resolution. The previous two did not pass.

Julie Walker spoke with Sir Lyall Grant.
