Greece elected to UN Security Council for 2025-26

Greece was elected as non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the period 2025-26, with 182 votes out of a total of 188 countries participating in the electoral process, on Thursday.

“Today is a historic day for Greece, for our country’s imprint in the world. The UN General Assembly voted predominantly in favor of our country. This is a great success. This shows the important capital that Greece has in the world, in the international environment,” Foreign Minister Giorgos Gerapetritis stressed.

Besides Greece, the countries that won seats for 2025-2026 in the Security Council included Denmark, Pakistan, Panama and Somalia.

The five elected members will begin their term on January 1, replacing those whose two-year term ends on December 31 (Mozambique, Japan, Ecuador, Malta and Switzerland).

All five countries have participated in the Security Council in the past – Pakistan seven times, Panama five times, Denmark four times, Greece twice and Somalia once.
